Meet The Chef
Food Service Director Matt Orear makes it his personal mission to be sure all of the residents in the Normandy community find both nutrition and pleasure in the meals they receive.
Matt was raised in Cleveland, where he had his first restaurant job at 13. His background includes work in several restaurants in Cleveland and New York, at catering companies and at Red Tail Golf Club in Avon. His greatest influence is his late grandmother, who helped raise Matt and his brothers. While the other boys played, Matt was often at Grandma’s side, first watching and then helping her make favorite family meals.
Chef Matt serves meals that are both appealing and nutritious, including turkey with homemade stuffing and gravy, chicken paprikash, and salmon with a light beurre blanc sauce. Plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits also feature prominently on our menu.
Matt’s cooking philosophy is to use high-quality ingredients and cook them from scratch. Flavors are celebrated and enhanced with natural ingredients for meals that are exciting and beautifully presented. There are no pre-packaged stocks, soups or sauces at The Normandy.
Although Chef Matt is happiest in the kitchen, residents and guests will find him every day in the dining room, where he talks with Normandy residents about their needs and tastes.
