Matt Wynn named executive chef at Taste
“He’s definitely always been on our radar since he left. When good people leave, we love to get them back,” Craft said.
At one point while considering him for the new gig, Craft had Wynn cook for him and was suitably impressed with how Wynn had honed his skills during his hiatus from Niche Food Group.
“It was really grown-up, delicious and simple,” Craft said. “Lots of times, young chefs want to put a million things on a plate.”
It convinced Craft that Wynn would fit in nicely with Taste’s theme of a menu of simple food that’s constantly changing.
“His style is what I really enjoy: simple, rustic, European,” Craft said. “I’m excited to see what he’ll do.”
