After years of working at high end restaurants, such as, Saratoga Grill, the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, Chat Noir in Costa Mesa and as a Corporate Executive Chef responsible for multiple locations, Chef Joe decided to work for himself and began his culinary company, Chef Joe Youkhan's Tasting Spoon , in 2010. He offers catering at all events - weddings, board meetings and in home intimate dinner parties. Joe also runs his own gourmet food truck offering Italian comfort street food. Joe has conducted several personalized fun interactive cooking classes. Joe has done and is available for consulting with either new or existing restaurant concepts.
