MEET UNCLE MATT
Baking memories to remember.
Matthew Kirshner is a pastry chef and the owner of Uncle Matt’s Bakery and Café. He trained with master pastry chefs from around the world, at renowned establishments such as the Russian Tea Room and the Essex House Hotel in New York City, in addition to the Roger Sherman Inn and Bantam Bread Company in Connecticut.
His love for baking can be traced back to his grandmother’s cookbook, which is still lined with notes from when she would earmark recipes for Matt as a child. Getting close to those childhood memory is an adventure that drives his culinary interests to this day.
