Joshua was a big man both in size and in heart. I remember riding with him to Philadelphia to a very special dinner at Le Bec Fin for numerous chefs from Baltimore. He loved his Southern roots; he loved his music and quoting the lyrics
He was a graduate of Johnson and Wales in Charleston South Carolina and parlayed that into his Southern Hospitality Solutions, the Restaurant consulting business. A restaurateur/consultant, he enjoyed developing restaurant concepts and opening new restaurants.
I think this quote from his Facebook page will lend insight into his love of words. Chef Joshua Hill, “I prefer to regard a dessert as I would imagine the perfect woman: subtle, a little bittersweet, not blowsy and extrovert. Delicately made up, not highly rouged. Holding back, not exposing everything and, of course, with a flavor that lasts.”
For those interested you can find his obituary and information about his memorial service at Roller Funeral Home.
