    Matthew Nelson, Executive Chef

    With five different eateries and restaurant outlets under his management, Executive Chef Matthew Nelson has a knack for multitasking. Crafting seasonal menus, developing flavorful recipes, costing out ingredients - all while mentoring the budding chefs under him is no easy task for a busy 6-month season.

    Chef Matthew’s culinary and personal background is deeply rooted in northern Michigan and the Straits of Mackinac area. Originally from Cedarville, Michigan and a graduate of Les Cheneaux Culinary School in Hessel, his experience with local cuisine, vendors, flavors and techniques is extensive. Nelson has a variety of experience in both front and back of house service as well as farm-to-table ingredient cultivation and selection.

    Chef Matthew joined the Mission Point team in 2016 as a Sous Chef overseeing Chianti and quickly worked his way through the ranks to be promoted to Chef de Cuisine in 2017. At the beginning of the 2018 season, he was named Executive Chef overseeing all culinary activities for the resort.

    In his spare time, Matthew enjoys spending time with his daughter, Emerson, as family is most important to him. He also enjoys spending time outdoors in all seasons whether it’s boating, golfing, biking or snowmobiling and loves to travel, trying local foods and flavors along the way.
