Matthew Charles "Matt" Tebbutt (born 24 December 1973) is a British chef and television food presenter best known for presenting shows such as Channel 4's Food Unwrapped and Drop Down Menu, the BBC's Saturday Kitchen and the Good Food channel's Market Kitchen. Matt ran The Foxhunter in Nant-y-derry for many years with his wife, Lisa, but gave it up to focus on his TV career. He does, however, have a restaurant called Shpoons & Forx at the Hilton in Bournemouth.
He was born in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire and moved to South Wales when he was only six months old. He was educated at Rougemont School in Newport. He studied Geography and Anthropology at Oxford Brookes University.
Tebbutt gained a diploma at Leiths School of Food and Wine in London, before working for some of London's most prestigious restaurants. This includes Marco Pierre White at the Oak Room and Criterion, and Alastair Little who he cites as the greatest influence on his cuisine.
Matt currently presents Food Unwrapped on Channel 4 alongside Kate Quilton and Jimmy Doherty. He also presented "Market Kitchen" with Tom Parker-Bowles and Matthew Fort and its successor "Market Kitchen: Big Adventure" alongside Penny Smith. He has also appeared on the Great British Menu and "Great British Food Revival". Tebbutt also co-presented Channel 4's Drop Down Menu with Gizzi Erskine.
He owned and ran the Foxhunter restaurant in Nant-y-derry near Usk in South Wales for 15 years. The restaurant has won a number of awards including the AA Restaurant of the Year for Wales. It is now leased as a pub while Matt Tebbutt concentrates on his TV career. The Hilton in Bournemouth now employs him as a consultant chef where he can regularly be seen cooking in the open kitchen.
