Soups have always mystified me. Mine always ending up either tasting like salt or like water. Chef Mat easily demystified them for me and I look forward to creating simple delicious meals at home with fresh herbs and homegrown vegetables. Delicious and fun. Highly recommended!

Chef Travels to You

After culinary school I moved to New Orleans where I worked in some of the city's finest kitchens. After receiving Food and Wine Magazine's 'Best New Chef' award in 2004, I moved to the Bay Area to work for top restaurants and then for the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy as the food and beverage manager. A few years later, I moved back to Seattle and am now working on my own. I am passionate about all things food and love cooking, anytime day or night.
