Matthew is a north NJ native and has 12 years in the culinary field with 8 of them at Crystal Springs Resort. During his tenure here he has worked in every department and restaurant ranging from a line cook, to most recently Chef de Cuisine in Restaurant Latour. He is drawn to the culinary field as he likes the challenge of its ever-changing nature as he continues to learn new things each day. When Matthew is not cooking he will be roaming through the woods, hiking or foraging for ingredients. He is continually pushing himself each day to be a better cook, and an even better father to his son Matthew.
