Message from our Chef:
For me, there is no better environment than this to remind me of why I love being a chef. Because to me, cooking is all about building relationships, and my roll on the Rugged Point team is to provide you with a five star culinary experience. I take pride in educating about food, techniques, and don’t hold onto recipes, so if you want them, I will show you. And if you want to join me in the kitchen, don’t be shy; I will throw an apron on you. You will not only catch amazing fish but also learn how to cook it. Whether it be fileting, smoking, making sushi, or other dishes I do, I love to entertain, and what better way to do so in such a stunning environment with world-class fishing and guides.
*If by chance you don’t want to go fishing, or, if your spouse wants to join and only cook, well, then this can also be a culinary adventure for foodies. This upcoming season at Rugged Point Lodge I will be offering full afternoon culinary classes, learn a little bit about food, but mostly, learn the subtle and painless art of executing a perfect dinner party. I will show you timing, plate presentation, organization, and the general tales of ordinary kitchen madness. – Chef Matthew
