Hello! My name is Josh Charles, I am a Chef based in St. Louis, Mo. I created this site to share my story and help everyone live a more fulfilling life.

I  got my start in the professional kitchen by attending Lecole Cullinaire in St. Louis, Mo. Working in the top kitchens in St. Louis  I got my first Sous Chef title at Prime 1000 Steakhouse before moving to Elaia+Olio and quickly becoming Chef de Cuisine. Currently, I am Executive Chef at Element restaurant where my small plate menu shows off the best ingredients from the Midwest. I also happen to be some what of a fitness junkie that loves the thrill of pushing myself to the limit.
