Intended for students and the wider public to improve their cooking skills –whether a novice, or experienced chef – the collection of twelve original yet straightforward recipes is available globally for free now at MattyMatheson.WeTransfer.com.
Included are easy to make staples with a creative twist like the Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich, Peanut Butter Instant Noodles, B.B.Q Chicken Enchiladas, and more.
- This initiative represents a fresh approach by WeTransfer to achieve greater awareness for its file transferring services as a distribution platform for creators and its focus on championing creativity on a global scale. The platform has allocated 30% of its advertising inventory to support creatives and donates 1% of its revenue to emerging artists through The Supporting Act Foundation.
- To accompany the cookbook, Matty will demonstrate how to cook 4 of the dishes in the 12-episode original series entitled ‘Cookin Somethin’’ which will be available to view on Matty Matheson’s YouTube channel (1.29M Subscribers).
- For this creative endeavor, WeTransfer gave Matty full creative control on the storytelling content, while acting as a platform for his community to watch and own his recipes for free.
- Matty Matheson worked closely with the creator age media company, Made in Network, to conceptualize and produce the book, as well as all content supporting the launch.

Internationally recognized chef and personality Matty Matheson has been breaking barriers since his cooking debut. His expansive career has brought many opportunities to the chef, restaurateur, two-time New York Times best-selling author (Matty Matheson: A Cookbook and Home Style Cookery), executive producer and television personality. Matty's presence in culture has grown exponentially in recent years as he's developed a number of companies outside the half a dozen restaurants he owns and operates; from his made in Canada workwear apparel brand Rosa Rugosa, to his home goods brand Matheson Cookware and food product brand Matheson Food Company, to his role as an executive producer and actor in the hit TV show The Bear (that recently received 13 Emmy nominations for its second season), Matty has brought his unique personality to the world in a variety of ways with no plans of slowing down any time soon.
