About World Food Bar & Chef Joshua Campbell:
World Food Bar is the creation of Joshua Steven Campbell and Corey Weitmarschen. The catering and carryout operation opened officially on Tuesday June 16, 2009, as a new addition to the historic Findlay Market located in downtown Cincinnati’s ‘Over the Rhine’.

The eatery specializes in serving ethnic and world foods that spotlight local and organic ingredients, most notably those farmers/vendors who frequent the Findlay marketplace.

Campbell, a Cincinnati native and graduate of Winton Woods High School, attended the Florida Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach from 1999-2001. During his culinary training, Campbell served at the Chef de Cuisine at 11th Maple Street ((listed in the Zagat survey as top restaurant in the U.S.) in West Palm Beach for 5 years

In 2003 Campbell returned to Cincinnati for 1 year and worked as a private chef for Bohlke Veneer Corporation in Fairfield and for David Faulk at Boca when it was at its original location.

In 2004 he returned to Florida and worked a short time as head chef at Osceola Street CafĂ© in Stuart, Florida. Later that year he was offered the Executive Chef position at The Dunmore Beach Club on Harbor Island in the Bahamas which is an Andrew Harper Hideaway Report “Best Small Resort”. During his 2-½ years at the Dunmore Beach Club he attended the Royal Thai Culinary Academy in Bang Sain, Thailand where he learned the art of creating Thai Cuisine, which he incorporates into many of his dishes.

Beginning in 2007 Campbell served as the Director of Cuisine for Graycliff in Nassau, Bahamas, which is the only 5 star restaurant and recipient of the Wine Spectator-Grand Award in the entire Caribbean. While at Graycliff, Campbell was the first chef to bring molecular gastronomy to the Bahamas.
