Matt Dean Pettit
From his first job as a busboy at the young age of 13 to line cook at 14, Matt’s passion for the food industry started early. Matt’s love for cooking comes from his mother, his passion over 20 years of experience in hospitality. He began to work on his own food company and soon gave birth to Rock Lobster Food Co, which grew into 3 bustling restaurants in Toronto, serving classic seafood dishes, comfort food, and home to the 3 year award-winning Rock Caesar. Matt is currently focused on expanding the Matty’s Seafood brand offering lobster bisque, chowder, mac & cheese, spices, and of course the famous lobster roll in Sobeys stores across Ontario along with other major retailers across Canada & U.S. Matt’s other exciting projects include his critically acclaimed Best-Selling cookbook, The Great Lobster Cookbook published by Random House, with a second book on the way and co-starring in the Food Network Canada TV & Web Show Supersnack Bros. where he showcased iconic snack foods made with crazy culinary twists.
