Josh Boutwood was born at Bedford, England. He has lived a nomadic life. Moving from Europe, the tropical beaches of Boracay, and Spain, he found what he was passionate about - working for his mother’s restaurant as a dishwasher and prep cook.
His love for food brought him to culinary school and made him experience menial kitchen jobs. In constant search of his calling, he knew he was destined for something. So when he became a father in Sweden, he decided he’ll move his young family to Boracay. In 2010, he started his own restaurant called “Alchemy” and the rest was history.
But it didn’t stop there. All it took was an email from The Bistro Group, and Chef Josh Boutwood knew he’s in for the ride of his life - again.
