Matt Sinclair

A MasterChef fan-favourite 

As a staple in MasterChef Australia’s 8th series, Matt Sinclair has delivered his love for cooking to Australian audiences with his easy-going style, sense of humour and charm. 

Raised in the Sydney shire of Sutherland, Matt’s passion for food was sparked by his great-grandmother and grandmother. Inspired by their cooking, Matt decided to pursue a career in the culinary arts.

Working closely with the chefs at Cronulla’s Summer Salt, Matt would gain as much experience and knowledge possible within the hospitality industry. After a short stint working as a bartender in Canada, Matt would take a solo trip to India to explore his passion for cooking in different cultures.

On MasterChef Australia, Matt was able to draw upon his different cultural experiences to cook up amazing dishes. He is particularly fond of his experience on the show working at some of California’s best food trucks, and would even go on to set up his own food truck with his mates in a 20ft shipping container at the Eat Street Market of Brisbane.

Currently, Matt runs the award-winning Sum Yung Guys in Noosa. As the driving force and menu-designer, the restaurant has gone on to win a Chef’s Hat from Good Food Awards, a Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Award, and has ranked in The Australian’s Top 50 Restaurants of the Year.

He continues to share his passion for food on Australian TV, with his roles on The Cook’s Pantry, MasterChef and My Market Kitchen. He also regularly appears at key events around Australia, including the Good Food & Wine Show, Regional Flavours and Grampians Grape.

As one of Australia’s defining personalities in gastronomy, Matt is also a popular brand ambassador for brands like Jacob’s Creek, Sirena Tuna, Australian Beef Association and Dell. He has also been the ambassador for Tourism Noosa and Tourism and Events Queensland.
