Chef Matt is an excellent host and instructor! He not only taught us how to prepare the tastiest paella I've ever had, but also taught us a lot of tricks to use in the kitchen, which I will definitely use in the future (like perfectly slicing tomatoes using two plates). He obviously knows his stuff, and was just a fun and friendly guy with lots of cool stories to share!

I am a seasoned chef with a dedication that began 25 years ago. It led to a degree in Hospitality & Restaurant Management and French Culinary School in California. Since then I’ve enjoyed rolling up my sleeves in every role from Private Chef and Kitchen Manager to Event Supervisor and Culinary Instructor. My love of cooking stems from the happiness and pride I take in providing you with the simple pleasures of dining -- a rustic farm-to-table meal, seasonal flavors, fun and laughter.
