Hello and welcome!
The Bluenosers is about food, family and sharing the good and the bad. This is family food, good food, the type that brings people to the table. Sharing their day with each other. It might not always be glamorous, but it is darn tasty.
Definition of a Bluenoser: ‘A native or inhabitant of Nova Scotia. Prone to kitchen parties with music, talking, food and drinks’.
Growing up in Nova Scotia, Matt’s childhood was always filled with friends, family and food. After gaining his undergrad degree from Mount Allison University, and a further degree in the USA, he moved to the UK in 2008 where he gained his Masters from the University of Cambridge. He also, unexpectedly, met his future husband. Together they live in Bedfordshire (North of London), where in 2017 they moved with their two adopted kids.
A food lover at heart, Matt’s cooking is always guided by the same ideals he grew up with. That it is family food, that is meant for sharing. Both the making, and eating.
He also has an addiction to wine gums.
A Little History.
2013 I started writing down food I was cooking.
2014 I started to actually think about the pictures of the food I was taking. Luckily they have been improving.
2015 I nearly gave it all up for a new, rather stressful, job.
2017 we decided to take all our carefully laid financial planning and throw it out the window. We adopted our two kids.
2018 Gave up the stressful job so I could actually do the school run. Decided, as I now had the time, I might as well try my hand at cooking/writing/photography again.
