Whitney & Josh Deri

They started Blend after falling in love at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Upon graduating, they trekked across the country to work tireless hours under envelope-pushing chefs in Napa Valley and San Francisco.

Whitney & Josh are happy to call the Greater Reno Tahoe area their home, as the region is brimming with culinary possibilities and evolving in exciting ways. They’ve loved bringing their experience to this revival and building valuable partnerships with other movers and shakers in the community to bring clients unparalleled experiences in food, drink and the celebration of life’s most delicious moments.

Along their food journey they’ve experienced a little bit of everything. They’ve even operated a food truck—a hot, humid, cramped food truck. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was challenging, but it wasn’t quite up their ally. Whitney & Josh are people-people who enjoy celebrations, special events, group dinners and other gatherings where friends, family, co-workers and strangers get together to share an experience. They like working a variety of events, it keeps their ideas and menus fresh.

It’s the people, the variety and the great food they get to create keeping them inspired!
