As well as a successful career in kitchens at some of the North East’s top hotels and restaurants, Matei has been determined to help people through cooking. He has published a recipe book for children called Big Chef Mini Chef. His inspiration was his son Armin who suffers from cystic fibrosis.

This year he teamed up with Stepney Banks Stable Charity to launch the Big Chef Little Chef Coffee Shop at the stables which will provide free cooking masterclasses for children and parents and also offer work experience for young budding cooks.
