Matthew Hogg is a former resident of Austin, Texas, where he found his calling to cuisine when he was five years old cooking with his dad.
His passion for Culinary Arts continued into high school and his friends where always more than happy to taste test his new menu creations. He says that the greatest compliment a chef can get is the silence a great meal brings, because everyone is too busy eating to talk.
Chef Hogg attended Texas Culinary Academy School of Le Cordon Bleu. After culinary school Matt quickly rose through the ranks and joined the Club Corp family in 2014 as an Executive Sous Chef at the Baylor Club in Waco, Texas.
His impressive skills and ability in the kitchen led to a promotion and relocation to the Plaza Club in San Antonio, Texas in 2017.
Now a Tucson Resident, we are excited to have Chef Hogg join us at the Arizona Sands Club as he brings with him many years of cuisine creativity and what is sure to be a pallet pleasing menu for the members of our club.
