Restaurant Latour Chef de Cuisine
Matthew is a Northern New Jersey native with a dozen years of experience in the culinary field, eight of them at Crystal Springs Resort. During his tenure at the Resort, he has worked in every department and restaurant with positions ranging from line cook to most recently as Chef de Cuisine in our 4-star Restaurant Latour. He is drawn to the culinary field and the challenge of its ever-changing nature as he continues to learn and implement new things each day.
In his role, Matt works alongside Resort Executive Chef Aishling Stevens to create exquisite three-course and seven-course menus. He approaches seasonal cooking in a modern and stylish way, with a tangible connection to our surroundings, utilizing fermentation, preservation, foraging, and locally sourced ingredients. When Matt is not cooking, he can be found 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.
