Growing up in a family full of chefs and kosher caterers in New Jersey, Mat Wertlieb has been in a kitchen since childhood. He first fell in love with the culinary scene of the Bay Area while working on externship at One Market Restaurant in 2000. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, he spent a year and a half in Boston’s busiest restaurant, Grill 23, before the pull of Northern California’s food culture drew him back. He has worked for the past decade at some of the most successful restaurants in San Francisco and Berkeley, including Lark Creek Inn, Farallon, Lalimes, and Gather. Trips to Italy and Israel furthered his exposure to, and passion for, the various cuisines of the world. Chef Mat now works part time at both Gather restaurant and Paula Leduc Fine Catering when not teaching classes with the Kitchen on Fire team.
