The Chef

 

Matt Weedon

Like many chefs, Matt Weedon left school aged 16, taking a summer job as kitchen porter at Pendley Manor in Hertfordshire, with the assistance of his mother, Jenny. As well as cleaning dishes, he helped out with simple prep work and after showing an interest in cooking, he was offered a permanent post.

This job signalled the beginning of a series of jobs working in country-house dining, working his way up the hierarchy of several other country hotel operations, including Hambleton Hall in Rutland in the Midlands and a Relais & Châteaux in Massachusetts, in the United States. Next was a position at Alan Murchison’s L’Ortolan in Reading, where during his tenure he mentored fellow Great British Chef Will Holland, then a year at Kish, near Dublin. His first head chef job followed, at Seaham Hall in Durham.
