Personal Life[edit | edit source]
Matheson has been married to his high school sweetheart Trish Spencer since August 2014 and has one child named Macarthur, born in March 2016. Matheson has three siblings named Stephen, Adam and Sarah. They were a close-knit and happy family — “a team,” says Matheson. Theirs was the place where all the kids gathered after school and on weekends. Matty was a class clown and the guy who always knew how to take a night to the next level. Matty was grounded a lot and was known as a troublemaker. He and his brother Stephen got into a scrap with the police during Matty's Grade 11 year, during which Matty was pepper-sprayed. During that same year Matty tried Cocaine for the first time. He moved to Toronto in 2000 at age 19 and started as a student in Humber’s cooking program — not because being a chef was a lifelong dream, but because he wanted to live in Toronto and it was the only program in the city that accepted him. He quickly discovered a natural aptitude for butchering meat and whipping up pâtés. With two weeks to go before graduation, Matheson dropped out of Humber to tour Canada with a bunch of his friends who were in a metal band. He was more of a mascot than a roadie — he wasn’t allowed to help carry instruments because he was usually too drunk. Upon returning to Toronto in 2006 he began working at Le Select Bistro and for the next six years he worked at several restaurants until finally landing at Parts and Labour as the executive chef. During this time Matheson continued living a hard-partying lifestyle, which caused problems in his personal and professional life. In June 2012 he suffered a heart attack and upon being released form the hospital he promised Trish and his employers he would stop consuming drugs and hard liquor. Three months later Matheson relapsed and it wasn't until November 2013 that he became sober and entered a 12 step program. 
Books[edit | edit source]
Matty will premier his first cookbook titled "Matty Matheson A Cookbook"  on October 9, 2018. This debut cookbook is about Matty’s memories of the foods that have defined who he is.
