  • Chef Matthew was awesome. First, his food was beyond delicious. His presentation and explanation of each meal served was explained and prepared perfect. His personality was professional and humorous. I can't wait to use him again.

  • Matthew was amazing. He seemed to really enjoy his job and was eager to answer cooking/prep questions while he was working. Definitely not a stuffy chef. His menu was delightful and made people try new things that they actually loved, roasted beets, edamame hummus but the quinoa cakes with tomato jam... OMG big hit. Would definitely use Matthew again.

  • Wow! We were so happy we chose Matt to create an amazing dining experience for our dinner party. My family and our guests loved both Matt and his cuisine.

    Matt made sure to liaise with us beforehand to understand exactly what we wanted; he went above and beyond with nice little touches for our kids; he made sure to let us know that we didn't need to do anything at all during the entire night; and he is just a super chill, fun and genuinely entertaining personality (if he was cooking for us, we'd love to have him as a guest at our dinner party!).

    We'd definitely hire Matt again in an instant, and strongly recommend him to anyone seeking to have an amazing meal experience at home.

    5-stars. You're awesome Matt!
