Chef Matt Jennings Chef Matt Jennings

Owner

Back on home turf, Matt hails from Jamaica Plain and Wellesley...

Now back on home turf, Matt hails from Jamaica Plain and Wellesley, Massachusetts. Growing up in New England and in a family who embraces the culture of food, Jennings’ cooking style has been greatly affected by his surroundings. The experiences of his youth- whether tending his parent’s elaborate vegetable gardens, fishing for Bluefish and Striped Bass on the Cape and Islands, cooking together in the family’s coal fired oven, or making pot pie from scratch on Sunday nights, have left an indelible imprint on the sensibility of his cuisine. Matt has received multiple nominations from The James Beard Foundation for Best Chef Northeast- as well as received other significant awards. Matt has authored and been featured in national and international publications and has been on The Food Network and PBS Television Programming. He currently lives in Belmont with his Pastry Chef wife Kate, and two sons Sawyer and Coleman.

For his first career, Matt Leddy, a Massachusetts native from North Attleboro, earned a degree in Biology from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, and then ventured to New York City where he worked at some of the top Intellectual and Property Law firms. Soon realizing that his heart was not invested in his work, he was eager to pursue his love of cooking no matter the risk. With a few years of practical experience under his belt, Matt returned to school to seek a culinary degree from Johnson & Wales University. While in school he joined Chef Matt Jennings and passionately worked his way through every station in the kitchen. Now as an experienced Chef, Matt will set the tone of leadership, growth and precision at Townsman. Forbes Travel Guide recently named Matt one of the “Five U.S. Sous Chefs to Watch.”

Meghan Thompson Meghan Thompson

Pastry Chef

Hailing from Connecticut, Meghan could be found in her home kitchen baking...

Hailing from Connecticut, Meghan could be found in her home kitchen baking alongside her Mother as early as six years old. In these moments, Meghan’s passion for pastry flourished and she developed a clear vision for her future in the culinary arts. Meghan soon pursued a degree in Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management from Newbury College. While attending college, she accepted a role at The Country Club in Brookline where she grew from Prep Cook to Line Cook and ultimately, Assistant Pastry Chef. Most recently, Meghan served as the opening Pastry Chef of Steel & Rye where she further developed her style, which is built on attention to rusticity, seasonality, and whimsy. At Townsman, Meghan will continue to hone her craft, creating hand made breads and desserts that showcase classic technique, yet still evoking that nostalgic feeling of eating your favorite dessert as a young child.
