Matthew has been the café reviewer for The Age’s Epicure section, worked for local and international food magazines, and was The Sydney Morning Herald’s Chief Restaurant Reviewer for five years.

These days Matthew lives the life most of us can only dream about, rearing old breed pigs and chooks and baking in a woodfired cooker on a small farmlet in Tasmania's beautiful Huon Valley. When he's not milking Maggie the fat, soft-eyed jersey cow, he's trying to get vegies to grow where the possums won't eat them. Matthew shares Puggle Farm with his gorgeous boy Hedley and his gorgeous girl Sadie.
Matthew has written, edited and contributed to numerous publications, including recipe books and travel guides. The Real Food Companion is Matthew's seventh book about food.
