Meet the Chef

Chef Matt Barone

Matt Barone has over 30 years of experience in the culinary field. A Johnson and Wales Culinary School graduate, he is a receiver of a silver medal for exhibition displays for the United States Culinary Olympic Team and was the 2002 Bon Appetit Chef of the Year.

He has extensive experience in the country club industry, having been at the helm at the Sadaquada Golf Club in Whitesboro and Teugaga Country Club in Rome. He founded his catering company, Creative Chefs Catering, in 2006 and has since offered a team of culinary professionals that make delectable dishes at memorable events for both private and business clientele.

"What I feel that is the most important is to use the best products in the food we prepare by using items that I grow personally, seeking out local products, harnessing the knowledge that I get from visiting food hubs, and putting into practice the power that comes with being a member of the CNY American Culinary Federation."
