The Dog Chef: Reinventing Pet Food

"If I won't eat it, I won't feed it to my dog," explained The Dog Chef's Executive Chef Kevyn Matthews. 

 Kevyn Matthews  is no stranger in the culinary world.  He learned how to cook from his mom at the early age of 10-years-old. He moved to New York City where he cooked  onset for commercials, movies, TV, and model shoots.

His passion for good food and love of animals collided, when he saw a dramatic change in his much-loved Doberman Pinscher, Greta.

“I was trying all the best Kibble’s that were out on the market. She would not go near them. I didn’t know what to feed her, so I decided to change her store bought bagged food to my very own creations,” said Chef Matthews.
