Ep. 32 Creating Cannabis Infused Meals – Cooking with Chef Matt
Jesse Betend talked to Chef Matthew Stockard, better known as Chef Matt, whose career has taken an improbable path. His culinary experience began at fourteen cooking with his grandmother, but he says his passion for cooking was actually born from an interest in crime. Growing up, Chef Matt says the two things that he wanted to do was either be a chef or go into forensic science. Those experiences with his grandmother eventually led Chef Matt to connect his interest in science with his passion for food and away from a life of solving crime. His career got its start back in college when he opened a barbecue stand where he fed mostly fellow students whether they could pay or not, and even then Chef Matt was aware that food was much more than just a meal. Today, he offers digital cooking classes on his website ChefMattCooks.com where he teaches people to cook with cannabis. He also offers a line of CBD infused products including cooking oils, honey, and his signature infused barbecue sauce.
Chef Matt is widely recognized as the premier chef within the cannabis industry. A true culinary impresario, Matt has managed 5-star restaurants, won several awards and has prepared multi-course meals for top celebrities and professional athletes. As a consummate cannabis and CBD consultant. Chef Matt has toured with large CBD business expos and conferences. Yet he’s also taught intimate, small group cooking classes. In the end, it’s always about creating exceptional infused meals for people to enjoy whether it’s seating for 100 or in your own kitchen.
