Introduction: Personalized in-home dining experience! Gourmet Healthy Paleo Vegetarian Vegan Gluten-Free Weight Watchers Specialty Diets Matthew Collom is a United States Army Veteran who fell in love with cooking while growing up as an outdoorsman. He learned to cook in an effort to truly give respect to beautiful ingredients. During his time at Miami University, he began cooking more gourmet and upscale in order to impress his now wife with extravagant dinners that he would never be able to afford at the restaurants with a college budget. It quickly became an obsession as he would spend most of his waking hours studying different types of global gourmet cuisine. His background in Social Studies Education lends to an ability to conduct in-depth research about new food types, which helped Chef Matt develop a huge arsenal of recipes from around the world. From globally inspired dishes like Togarashi-Spiced Ribeyes with Dragon Sauce and Indian-Style Chicken Curry to American Classics like Smokehouse Beef Brisket and Steakhouse Pork Chops with a Pan Sauce, Chef Matt can really do it all. He offers the following services: Weekly Meal Preparation, Dinner Parties, Vacation Home Chef, Catering, and Cooking Classes. He is a member of the United States Personal Chef Association and holds his SERVSAFE Food Handler's Certificate.

Prepared everything we requested, was such a delightful person to have in our home, very much enjoyed having him as our Personal Chef.

Chef Matt was great! It was so much easier than going out to eat and we got to spend quality time in our own home as a family (and get some use out of our big green egg grill). We chose Indian cuisine…which can be risky with everyone having different spice level preferences but and even my picky 8 year old finished her entire plate! Will definitely reach out to him to do this again! Food was so delicious! Definitely a great experience!

We recently hired Matt to help us with weekly meal prep. He has been extremely responsive, provided lots of menu options and gave detailed instructions on how to heat up the meal day of. Food has been excellent so far!

Matt was amazing! After a bad first experience trying to hire someone to prepare a meal, Matt came through and changed our minds about the experience. Matt was responsive and easy to work with and accommodating to our preferences. Matt was punctual and all of our food was amazing 👏 Not only was our food great but Matt cleaned up everything as we ate which we wouldn't have expected but was appreciated. We were in a small kitchen in a Airbnb and Matt had no problem making the area work! Highly recommended, you won't regret it!

    I will send new customers an email questionnaire that helps me get to know their food likes, dislikes, and allergies. This questionnaire is very in-depth and lets me create menus that you absolutely love!

    Mostly self-taught, although I worked in restaurants all throughout college, including The Melting Pot. SERVSAFE Food Handler's Certificate. United States Personal Chef Association.
