Culinary Express executive chef and founder Matthew J. Hanley is a graduate of The Academy of Culinary Arts. With nearly 30 years in the food-service industry, Matthew has worked in many restaurants, country clubs, and catering operations—including Your Personal Chef, Inc. for the last 18 years—before undertaking this latest endeavor, Culinary Express.
Having traveled extensively to all of the lower 48 contiguous states, as well as Canada and Mexico, as a result, Matthew has gained broad exposure to the many regional flavors and flairs of the many cuisines found in North America. A product of this diversity is his affection for fusion-cuisine, a blend of ingredients and food preparation diversity gathered from the many points of travel and research. Putting these varied tastes, traditions, and techniques together has allowed Matthew to offer exceptional fare in all cuisine styles. In addition to travel, and casual cooking for enjoyment as well, Matthew enjoys gardening with a wide range of vegetables and herbs.
