Reasons to Hire Me

  • I am responsive and creative, and easy to work with.

Chef in Sedona, Arizona

I work well within different dietary restrictions, and am always stimulated by the creative challenges they present. But as an adventurous omnivore myself, I have a wide-ranging palette, and am constantly thinking through new culinary ideas. I have good instincts and great communication skills. If you'd like some special food for a special occasion, I know how to make a satisfying meal for any size group—without making any of your guests with special requirements feel left out. If you need to stock-up your freezer with healthy lunches and dinners you can look forward to, that will reduce your stress about cooking, I'm happy to help. If you've gotten tired of eating the same meals over and over, and you just need some more variety, I can create a menu with you, and help you spice things up. Or maybe you need an in-home chef a couple of nights every week to help lighten your load. I'm happy to discuss different options with you. I have cooked for clients who are dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian/vegan, low-FODMAP, low-Histamine, Keto, supertasters, and folks with all sorts of other food sensitivities and special dietary requirements. My goal is always to help people enjoy the widest variety of meals that their diets allow—meals that are satisfying, nutritious, and full of the flavors they love. I have lived in Utah, Arizona, Philly, Washington, D.C. & Buenos Aires, and travelled to many countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia. My favorite thing about travel has always been the opportunity to try-out the local cuisines. In my own cooking, I am inspired by flavors from around the globe. I work in Flagstaff & Sedona.

Recommendations

Billy Murphy

I HIGHLY recommend Matthew. He made meals for me for 2 months while I was in Sedona, and went above and beyond in not only thinking up creative options for a very specific diet I'm on, but would constantly adjust the menu to keep it interesting, and based on feedback. Will definitely be working with Matthew again the next time I'm out here. Couldn't have picked a better person to work with.

Matthew's cooking is exceptional. The meals that he has prepared for me and my family have been without a doubt some of the best that I have had. I have been surprised by his ability and range of cooking styles which has included home made corn dogs, vegan creamy broccoli soup, gumbo, striped sea bass, and sea weed pesto (the sea weed pesto is a poem). I have been very impressed by the overall adaptability of his cooking and he has been able to accommodate the nutritional restrictions of my family and guests.

Beyond expectations! Matthew worked with my diet requests, with my plastic/enviro requests, my timeframe, my needs, and my preferences. The food was delicious. The ingredients were pre-approved but put together in a way I never could do myself so that was fabulous! The quantities were more than I’d anticipated so I even had leftovers. As I wrote in my text to Matthew on the first day, “happy mouth, happy customer.”

Darah Easton

Matthew prepared a wonderful meal for 7 people for a bachelorette party, and I am thrilled with how things worked out! Leading up to the event, he was super easy to work with (accommodating of diet restrictions and the number of guests changing at the last minute). Everything he prepared was delicious -- including fun cocktails and appetizers, generous portions and beautiful presentation. He made everything so fun! I highly recommend him.
