Boston-based Chef Joe Gatto is a culinary dynamo, blending his passion for scratch cooking with a big personality and a flair for the dramatic.

But his influence extends beyond the screen—Joe also hosts major food events in and around Boston, including Boston Magazine’s “The Cue.” 

Most recently, Chef Joe started offering classes in many of our favorite communities North of Boston! You can find his most recent class offerings on his Instagram page.

“From Scratch” stands out as one of the most unique cooking shows out there. Joe’s commitment to authenticity shines through as he dives into every aspect of cooking, from the ground up. Here are some highlights: 

  1. Crafting from Scratch: Joe doesn’t just cook; he creates. From making his own charcoal to hand-forging his own knife, he goes all out to make an engaging, informative, and fun show. 
  2. Farm-to-Table Adventures: The show visits sites along the Atlantic coast and inland, mainly in Massachusetts and Maine. Joe explores local farms, markets, and artisanal producers, emphasizing the importance of fresh, local ingredients. 
  3. Cooking Techniques: Viewers learn essential cooking techniques, whether it’s pickling for preserving fresh local produce or mastering pizza-making at home. 


Joe’s cookbook, “Seriously From Scratch,” is a nationwide hit. It’s a treasure trove of recipes, tips, and stories that encourage everyone to embrace scratch cooking. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a beginner, Joe’s book inspires creativity in the kitchen. 

Beyond the TV show, Joe teaches cooking classes locally. His classes cover everything from pizza-making to mozzarella-pulling. Joe’s commitment to community extends to working with organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and the YMCA, where he donates his time and skills to help people learn to cook from scratch.
