I'm big fan of Matty for his cooking and personality. His shows are very entertaining. I was hoping I would be as entertained and educated with his cookbook. It exceeded my expectations and have already started planning to make a couple of his amazing recipes. Matty's book is such a good read I'm hitting it like a paperback novel. Beutifull, sad and hilarious story's and great photos that almost transport you to the places and food that made an impact on Matty's life.
