About Matt Orlando:

As chef and owner of Amass, Matt Orlando started his cooking career in San Diego, California. Starting at the age of 15, Matt worked his way up through the ranks of restaurants, beginning with setting up the salad bar at San Diego’s Chart House. Only until Matt started working for Francis Perrot at Fairbanks Ranch in San Diego did he realize that he wanted to pursue his career at a much higher level. In 2001 Matt took a chance and moved to New York City, where he worked both at Aureole and Le Bernardin, before heading to the UK to work at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and The Fat Duck. Matt’s tenure at The Fat Duck gave him the opportunity to meet René Redzepi, the owner and chef of the critically acclaimed Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark. This surprise meeting led to a two-year Sous Chef position, before Matt returned to New York City to take another Sous Chef position at Thomas Keller’s Michelin three-starred restaurant, Per Se. Matt traveled to Copenhagen in 2010 to be Noma’s first Chef de Cuisine for two-and-a-half years before he left to pursue his own dream of opening Amass in July 2013. (bio from
