Matt Manning is an international Private Chef and creator of the One Ingredient dining experience.

Matt perfected his trade in the kitchens of some of London’s finest restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Pétrus and Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley (now called Marcus). Matt was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to hone his skills under some of the best in the business, such as Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing, Alyn Williams, James Knappet and Bryn Williams.

In Cape Town Matt conceptualised One Ingredient; an interactive monthly dinner experience that showcases the versatility of a single ingredient across five courses, where guests are given the opportunity to recreate Matt’s dishes for themselves.

When not hosting his signature One Ingredient dinners, Matt occasionally partners with some of the Cape’s best wine farms to host bespoke fine dining events, and is regularly invited to cook in the homes of local and international guests.
