  2. They just don’t get better than Matthew Orlando, with food and with life. It’s a privilege to know him and to eat his food is a blessing. This was a great interview as you can see how comfortable he is with the subject and confident in what he is doing. He spent many years training and learning but he was always good with food and people.
