About the Chef
Chef and owner Matt’s love for cooking started with his love for family. Matt recalls his fondest memories as a child and young adult cooking beside his grandmother learning European style flavor techniques, passed down family recipes and testing daily new concoctions on his parents and sisters. Years later, his days look very similar but along with cooking for his loved ones, he uses his culinary talents to create scratch made rustic inspired cuisine for couples and clients through the Northwest.
In 2002, Chef Matt was formally trained and graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute and spent a decade working alongside Portland’s leading Chefs and fine dining restaurants. In 2014, Chef Matt along with his wife, Riley and their unbridled passion for food started Mad Hatter Catering and Events. Chef Matt utilizes Northwest flavors using organic and local ingredients while Riley is head of event presentation and food styling. And works with the all-star Mad Hatter team to ensure every occasion is an unparalleled experience of service, presentation and taste.
