Matt Byrne is a freelance writer who has been penning words about the world of food for more than fifteen years. He's been eating for even longer. His love of the culinary world started before he could walk, when his mother would set him on the counter to help her make peanut butter cookies. His first job was cooking at a small local eatery where he was mentored in the way of the spatula by a chef named Jim Carrier who no one knows, but many should. He prefers Asian or Mediterranean food.


Matt has a Bachelor's in Telecommunication Technologies and Systems from Gheorghe Asachi Technical University Of Iasi. He also has a Master's in the dismal science of economics from the University College Dublin. He never really uses either one.
