Personal Life

Scherer’s parents didn’t cook so he grew up on frozen food and microwavable meals, but honed his culinary skills by constantly watching Food Network. At 6 years old, Scherer snuck away from his babysitter, and despite his fear of the stovetop flame, made himself a grilled Cheese Sandwich. In an interview with DailyBruin, he said:

“Even as a little kid, I knew how to cook.

I could see how the ingredients came together in the pan.

It’s always been innate.”[20]

“It’s insane that cooking is looked at like an incredible specialty skill.

The rest of the world, every age group, cooks because that’s how you get food in your mouth and not die.”[20]

Social Media

As of November 2019, Josh has 162,000 followers on his mythicalchefjosh Instagram. He usually posts food, gym photos and photos with friends. He also has 36,500 followers on his MythicalChef Twitter.[6]
