Matt Ryan

Head Chef

Born and bred in San Francisco, Matt truly embraced the diverse food scene the city had to offer. Having worked in fine dining French, classic Italian, tradition Mexican, and American fare restaurants all over San Francisco for over 12 years, it was under the guidance of Chef Pierre Lagourgue that Matt’s thirst for all things food truly blossomed. Relocating to Chicago in 2015 to immerse himself in another food focused city, Matt hopes to bring his California rootsto Amazing Edibles and stir it up with some Midwestern flavor, maybe even with a beer or two.
