Born in England, Private Chef Matt Manning perfected his trade in London’s finest Michelin-starred restaurants under the tutelage of some of the best in the business, including Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing, Alyn Williams and Bryn Williams.
Upon relocating to South Africa, Matt worked at La Colombe, before his inherent entrepreneurial spirit saw him embarking on a solo career as a private chef. Matt regularly cooks for bespoke events, corporate functions, intimate occasions, as well as for clients abroad.
