Joshua Hebert



Chef Joshua Hebert hails from Bayou Lafourche, where he grew up in the kitchens of his mother and grandparents. He learned and was inspired by the love they put into their family meals, earning the nickname “Potlicker” because he was frequently caught dipping a spoon into a pot on the stove. Hebert is the General Manager and Executive Chef at Roux 61 Baton Rouge and the owner of Bearfoot Culinary Services. He was a 2018 Country Roads Magazine Small Town Chefs Award Winner and the Runner Up in the 2018 Louisiana Seafood Cook Off.

In fact, The New York Times said, “If there were community cookbook awards, the Oscar for best performance would go hands down to River Road Recipes.”
