| CELEBRITY CHEF |
Matt’s love of food started at an early age. Growing up on a tropical fruit farm on the Sunshine Coast surrounded by fresh produce has influenced his style of cooking throughout his entire career. By the age of 12, he had decided he wanted to be a chef, and over 30 years later, his passion for the industry he loves only continues to grow by the day.
After many years working in restaurants, and a six year stint owning and running a successful catering company in Noosa, Queensland. As a keen supporter of local producers, Matt has spent many years travelling to events all over Australia to showcase their regional talent.
In previous years, Matt has also leant his hand to writing recipes and food columns for various publications, as well as developing recipes with food producers around Australia to create original recipes to help promote their products.
When he’s not busy wearing one of his many chefs hats, Matt loves playing music with friends and is a keen long distance runner.
