Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Joshua Tepperberg knows a thing or two about flavor!
A former Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and professional percussionist, Tepperberg toured the globe as a musician and honed his culinary skills in various parts of the world including Asia, South America and the Caribbean. Joshuaâ€™s deep love of international foods and deep appreciation for natureâ€™s finest ingredients is the foundation of his unique cooking style, which he describes as Global Soul.
Inspired by his affinity for the international fare he samples on his various voyages, Joshua launched his personal chef and catering business in 2006. Focusing on his “from the ground up” philosophy, he created all of his marinades & dry rubs, seasoning salts, and batter mixtures from scratch using all natural ingredients. Joshuaâ€™s delectable blends took on a larger-than-life identity of their own, and upon observing his technique with seasonings, one extremely satisfied customer proclaimed him “Doctor Marinade” and the name stuck ever since.
Joshuaâ€™s coveted recipes became the toast of NYC and he quickly developed a reputation as the go-to-guy for fantastic healthy meals that will leave guests buzzing for weeks. Solely through word of mouth, Tepperbergâ€™s client base expanded and Doctor Marinade began making frequent house calls throughout the big apple.
Today the “Doctor” has developed a cult-like following amongst the A-list set with a loyal fan base that includes: Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, Hollywood screen siren Kerry Washington, British songbird Estelle celebrity fashion designer Tina Knowles, TV personality Lisa Ling, and MTV reality star Kristin Cavallari.â€¨â€¨The rave reviews received by Tepperbergâ€™s cuisine prompted him to launch a signature line of gourmet cooking products called Dr. Marinade, of course!
Now everyone can experience his medicine for a perfect meal.
