About Matt Casino
Matt Casino, the executive chef of Blooming Hill Farm, began working in restaurants at the age of 14, and from there spent time in some of the finest kitchens in American. Time spent at Philadelphia’s famed Le Be-Fin, under the tutelage of legendary Georges Perrier, provided Matt a firm rooting in classical French technique that still informs his cooking today. Working with Jose Garces at his eponymous restaurant Amada, Matt’s eyes widened to the flavors of Spain, Portugal, and Morocco—influences that he continually references in his cooking at Blooming Hill Farm, always in a thoroughly American context. While at Eleven Madison Park, Matt spent time honing his skills on the intricacies of multicourse meals and the dynamic character of one of the world’s best restaurants. Under Certified Master Chef Ed Leonard, Matt began to develop his craft at the Westchester Country Club in Rye, finding great teachings in the restaurants exacting standards and dizzying pace.
