Chef Josef is originally from Switzerland where he joined the Suisse Cooking Apprenticeship program with an emphasis on French cuisine and dining room management.
Chef Josef moved to Santa Rosa in 1980 and opened La Province, a French continental restaurant, for a run of 12 years. Following that, he owned and managed Josef’s Restaurant & Bar at the La Rose Hotel for 17 years. During his time here in Sonoma County, he also created Chef Josef’s Seasoning Blends.
Today, Chef Josef brings his years of experience to our Meals on Wheels kitchen. He had previously worked as a Culinary Consultant for Meals on Wheels from 2010-2011 and returned to Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels program in October 2017.
