Paddock to Plate Catering Co has been started by Northern Beaches local chef Matt Bray who is driven to bring fresh, sustainable and regional produce into exquisite dishes.

After 14 years as a chef, Matt has gained extensive and prolific culinary experience, working in fine dining restaurants in Australia and around the globe.

Matt has had the opportunity to cook in a Michelin restaurant of Europe, luxury yachts and a pop up restaurant by the Noma chefs in Dublin, just to name a few.

He has also worked alongside with some incredible chefs/mentors including Peter Kuruvita and Pete Evans. Matt has had the opportunity to dish out food for four prime ministers of Australia and an A-list of Hollywood celebrities.

Matt has travelled widely in over 50 countries and experienced and learnt about the different cultures, food traditions and cooking methods. He has spent many months in each continent taking cooking courses (but more importantly eating) honing his skills in multiple cuisines and perfecting the fusion of fresh produce that is on offer.

Matt aspires to be apart of the visionary and innovative movement which is 'paddock to plate' in Sydney's northern beaches by using exclusive and regionally grown ingredients, collaborating with local farm owners to bring in an assorted range of palates straight from the farm to the table. He is a proud member of Slow Food Australia and keen to promote the Ark of Taste project.

The cuisines are a modern fusion with amazing local products and traditional/ advanced cookery methods.

Matt was absolutely excellent; from our initial enquiry to our wedding day, he was fantastic. He was extremely flexible and was so easy to communicate with, not to mention the food was everything that we could have hoped for and more. Matt is an extremely talented chef and incredibly humble, we couldn't recommend his services enough.

They were really wonderful, and Matt was so easy to deal with and he was really lovely and considerate and professional. Everyone loved the food, it was the standout at the wedding. He really listened to what we wanted and customised the menu for us to work with the vibe of what we wanted for the day, and worked with local produce to make that happen. Even when there were some things unavailable he would always check up with me first, and was always open to changing the menu if need be. I'd recommend them to anyone!

Matt and his team were so amazing! Their chilled out vibe was perfect for our Wedding but they were still so professional and made sure we didn't have to do anything on the day other than enjoy ourselves. Everything went perfectly to plan and the quality of what they produced from the tiny kitchen space we were able to supply them with was SENSATIONAL. A lot of guests raved about the food at our Wedding. I also want to give a special mention to the ethics of what Matt is doing with his business, for us it was really special to feel like we were spending our money on a business which thinks about food in such a responsible, sustainable way and doesn't let profit compromise their values. I can't recommend Matt and his team from Paddock to Plate enough.

Food was excellent. Staff went above and beyond. Grazing table looked incredible. The slow-cooked meat and chicken satay skewers were incredible. The style of food, presentation and service suited out weddings needs. Organised and friendly throughout the whole process.
