The art of making great bread and pizza involves the synergy between many small details such as formulas, technique, fermentation control, ingredients and more. Whether you are a professional baker, own or are planning to open a restaurant, run a bakery, pizzeria or just want to dial in your dough recipe at home, I am here to help.

What People are Saying...

"Matt was an integral part of developing our signature dough recipe. He implemented systems into our kitchen to help provide guidance on how we could scale our business and still keep the high standards that we strive for everyday."

Shlomo Buchler

- Owner Maker Pizza

"Chef Duffy is a great teacher, chef and baker. During the three years we worked together he taught me so much more than techniques. His ability to motivate others to succeed and become better cooks was one of the most important. Matt has a lot to teach, we are all so lucky he has devoted his life to it."
Jackie Kennedy

-Culinary Manager to Chef Daniel Boulud

"Over two years ago I took a sourdough bread making class with Matt, more out of curiosity than interest. Well, he turned my curiosity into a passion. Bread making isn't just a skill, it is therapeutic. Tidbits of his massive wealth of knowledge helps you learn how to make bread beyond what the average baker can teach you. He gives sound reasons to explain not only how you do things, but why. Learning from Matt will give you a life skill that you won't regret."
