Chef Joshua Weissman (S7/Ep.11)

Published on: 25th May, 2022

Joshua Weissman is a chef and best-selling cookbook author. He grew up in Los Angeles and at age 18 moved to Austin, Texas where he started his professional career in some of Austin’s most prominent kitchens. At age 22, he started making YouTube videos about food with the goal of providing as much value as possible to people. He soon became one of the most recognized chef/content creators and has amassed millions of followers across YouTube, TikTok and other social media platforms. When he announced the release of his book, “An Unapologetic Cookbook,” it became the No. 1 bestseller of all books on Amazon in less than three hours. In this episode we discuss how food and cooking was an outlet for him as a kid that was bullied, how his family supported his journey, and we dive into his creative process of content creation. Weissman believes chefs are conduits of the communities they sit down in and shines a light on Southern Smoke, an organization that provides assistance to people in the food and beverage industry.
