Joshua Holmes || Executive Chef
Joshua Holmes joined Sleeping Lady as Executive Chef in August 2013. He brings more than 15 years of culinary experience to the resort and has worked in a variety of restaurants and locations throughout the country. His blend of geographical cooking styles ranges from the Mid-Atlantic to the South and now the West.
A graduate of the prestigious culinary program at Johnson & Wales University in Charleston, SC, his culinary repertoire includes not only regional American cuisine, but also Italian, French, Argentinean and Spanish.
Prior to arriving at Sleeping Lady, Joshua served as Chef de Cuisine at The Greenbrier, the fabled resort and National Historic landmark in West Virginia. He has also worked in New York restaurants, including Gramercy Tavern and Tom Colicchio’s Craft.
Under Joshua’s leadership in the kitchen at Sleeping Lady, The Kingfisher Restaurant and Bar stands alone as a culinary destination. In addition to overseeing the kitchen and planning menus, Joshua also works closely with the Sleeping Lady’s gardening staff, helping them plan what edibles to grow throughout the year in the property’s 2-acre organic garden and greenhouse. He also showcases products from many other farmers and food producers located in the Icicle and Wenatchee river valleys.
When not in the kitchen, Joshua enjoys getting his hands dirty in the garden, hiking through the beautiful Pacific Northwest forests, creating around the house, and enjoying some down time with the dogs.
