Joshy’s Food Network’s bio:
Originally from England, Joshy, 12, moved to Northern California when he was 8 years old. He learned to cook Italian food from his Italian family, and he’s even mastered cookies, biscuits and cakes. Despite being a bit of a control freak in the kitchen, Joshy likes to cook with his friends. He dreams of becoming both a chef of a Michelin-starred restaurant and a soccer player, even though that sounds like a crazy combination.
