An 'honorary Welshman' since the age of six months, chef Matt Tebbutt is passionate about British cuisine, seasonal produce and getting back to nature.
After graduating from the prestigious Leith's School of Food and Wine in London, Matt landed a traineeship with Marco Pierre White, followed by a stint of classic French cooking at Chez Bruce.
Moving on to work for his hero Alistair Little, he picked up tips on high-quality, rustic cooking and seasonal ingredients. In 2001, Matt and his wife Lisa took over The Foxhunter pub in Nantyderry, South Wales, turning it into an award-winning restaurant with a daily-changing menu featuring recipes using Matt's foraging finds.
As well as working hard in the kitchen, Matt has presented Drop Down Menu on Channel 4 with Gizzi Erskine, Market Kitchen on the Good Food Channel and appeared on The Great British Menu and Saturday Kitchen for the BBC.
