Chef Matt Binkley, the creator of Culinary Search Group, has been in the culinary industry since the young age of 15. He is a chef, teacher, consultant and cookbook author. His experience and knowledge of the industry, as well as his degree in Nutrition and Nutraceutical Sciences, have led him to unique opportunities, apprenticing under some of North America’s best chefs, including Jean Georges Vongerichten, Chef Michael Stadtlander and Mark McEwan.
As a private chef, Matt has spent 16 years cooking for the wealthy and famous on private estates, yachts and private islands in North America, the Bahamas and the Middle East. Matt has completed his seventh Arctic Safari tour. Working in remote locations throughout Nunavut, Canada, he has cooked for the Prince of Monaco as well as other members of the world’s elite.
In March of 2013, Matt qualified to interview with the King of Jordan for an opportunity to become his Private Nutritional Chef. It was at that time that Matt decided to return home with his noble and humble pursuit of passion and purpose, and create the Culinary Search Group.
Seeing a gap in the market, Matt provides high quality, well-trained staff, from Front to Back-of-House, as well as Executive, Corporate and Private Chefs.
Chef Matt Binkley supplies the know-how, the security and the dependability to meet his client’s demands.
