A Bit About Matthew
Since childhood, Matthew has hit the ground running, using creative content to educate and connect people through food. His family’s Middle Eastern heritage centered many traditions around delicious meals.
Growing up, he was fascinated by the complex flavors and seasonings his grandmother would use in her recipes. By 8 years old, he not only knew what exotic spices like turmeric, cardamom and garam masala were but how to use them.
The satisfying thrill of participating in meals that took hours to prepare made him ready to take on new challenges. Soon he was making a name for himself online by creating decadent French desserts like crème brûlée, chocolate éclairs and croquembouche.
