Meet The Chef
Chef Matt Paille grew up surrounded by Sonoma County’s bustling farm and wine industry. At age fifteen, after taking culinary classes, he was offered his first position at Cattleman's Steakhouse in Santa Rosa, where he worked his way up the line from fry cook to grill. Chef Paille went on to study at Maui Culinary Academy and then worked under Wolfgang Puck at Spago, James McDonald at Pacific’o, and Tom Leli of Manana Garage. Through his travels in Asia and South America, he developed an extensive knowledge of international cuisines, cooking everything from wild piranha in the Amazon, guinea pigs in Peru, and near endless varieties of seafood in Chile. After returning home to Northern California, Chef Paille worked at The Ritz Carlton and Medici Lounge in SF as well as Manzanita Restaurant in Healdsburg before founding Epicurean Escape Catering.
His creations are absolutely to die for and his helpful and kind nature instantly won us over.
