JUMPIN’ JAY’S TEAM
Matt St. Peter
Chef Matt has a true passion for the creative presentation of food; he considers cooking his personal artistic medium. At the age of fifteen he landed his first job in a kitchen - inciting his interest in the culinary arts. From there he was determined to explore all that the culinary world had to offer. For the past decade Matt has been building his skills and career; devoting his time to learning as much as possible from his peers and mentors. When he’s not in the kitchen, he enjoys watching his Kansas City Chiefs and spending time with his wife, two young daughters, and his dog, Lucy.
Born in Springfield, Massachusetts into a Navy family, Chad spent much of his childhood moving around the country. He ultimately settled on the Seacoast in 2010. Chad grew up surrounded by culinary influences. His mother's love of cooking and his family’s businesses of inns and restaurants all played a part in cultivating his passion for the hospitality industry. He has dedicated many years in the kitchens and dining rooms of many long-standing seacoast restaurants. He enjoys spending his days off with his wife and making time for his family.

In her free time she enjoys hiking, reading, and walking the dogs of the seacoast.
