Get to know me better
Local and healthy cuisine focusing on amazing tastes.
I started as a scratch homecook learning from my amazingly talented mother and grandmothers before continuing my learning at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI. Since then, I've lived in Boston and had the opportunity to train under the greatest chefs in the city, including Barbara Lynch, Tony Maws, Jody Adams, and Colin Lynch. Outside of Boston, I've worked at Public Restaurant in NYC, a 1 Michelin star establishment, and Mikla in Istanbul, ranked 46th best in the world.
I am in the process of opening my own restaurant in East Boston that will be a fusion of my love of fresh, local ingredients, beautiful global cuisine, and sustainable, minimal-waste cooking.
For me, cooking is...
all about beautiful flavors that are sustainable for the body and planet. I feature amazing local and seasonal ingredients in my global cuisine.
I learned to cook at...
Milka in Istanbul, Public in NYC, Craigie on Main, Menton, Porto, Blue Hill at Stone Barns
A role model in the kitchen is...
all the incredible women in my life.
A cooking secret...
finding flavor potential in everything and anything.

Chef Matthew's reviews
Chef Matt was very kind and accommodating while deciding the menu for my husband’s birthday! I cannot thank him enough for including the dishes my husband likes in the menu but adding a modern twist to each of the dishes. In addition to that , I am a vegetarian and my husband prefers meat, so Chef Matt was kind enough to accommodate that as well. The food was delicious and presentation was incredible. It didn’t take much long to prep the dishes and they left the kitchen spick & span

We booked Matt for a celebration at our home in May of 2021. To say that Matt is an expert in his craft is an understatement. He skillfully prepared an absolutely delicious four-course meal for ten people and timed out each course to perfection. Matt offers a diverse menu that will inevitable include your new favorite meal, should you have the pleasure of booking him! He is also extremely personable as well as professional, and a delight to have in your home. We had so much fun getting to know Matt and watching him cook! If you are looing for a chef who consistently provides incredible food, as well as great company, we cannot recommend Matt enough!
