Matt Schieble, Executive Chef · Fresco

Matthew is originally from Columbus, WI and has been in the restaurant industry for almost 20 years. What started as a search for a fast-paced career that provided a creative outlet eventually landed Matthew in culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Chicago. Matthew started his career working in Michelin Star restaurants in Chicago and eventually became the Executive Chef at Harvest in Madison. He also worked as a Sous Chef in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and in Lahaina, HI on Maui. Most recently, Matthew helped open Mint Mark in Madison and also worked as a butcher for Underground Food Collective. Working for great organizations with great people are part of Matthew’s motivation. “Seeing others push for something special and unique is a joy for me. It inspires me to do better and take more chances. It also makes me push my team harder to see what we can accomplish. Restaurant people are a tough tribe. We deal with adversity and are in the business of getting the job done. Not to mention we have great senses of humor. I love being surrounded by professionals who strive to deliver memorable experiences.” Matthew lives in Madison with his cat Buddy and his fiance Maggie who is also a Chef. When Matthew isn’t busy in the kitchen he enjoys playing video games, frisbee golfing and biking. He also enjoys traveling and going out to eat at other great restaurants in the Madison area.
