Pacific Fins is excited to welcome back Serial Griller, Matt Moore to the 8th Annual Guatemala Billfish Invitational.
Author. Entrepreneur. Cook. Musician. Host. Pilot. Adventurer. Southern Gentleman.
These are just some of the words used to describe Nashville, TN based Matt Moore. Moore’s work has garnered critical acclaim as far reaching as the BBC and CBC to The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Atlanta Constitution, Chicago Tribune, People, Southern Living, Redbook, Esquire, Men’s Journal, TODAY, CBS, VH1, FOX, Hallmark, The Art of Manliness, and countless others. As a chef, Moore specializes in updated Southern cuisine with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences. He’s also a cast-iron and wild game enthusiast with extensive experience working over live fires.
His first book, Have Her Over for Dinner, a Gentleman’s Guide to Classic, Simple Meals was named one of the year’s best cookbooks by The New York Times. His follow-up, A Southern Gentleman’s Kitchen (TIME INC Books) was released to wide praise and acclaim in the spring of 2015. His best-selling, The South’s Best Butts (TIME INC BOOKS) was named the #1 cookbook of the year by The National BBQ and Grilling Association in 2018. Moore’s recent work, Serial Griller (HMH 2020), has also enjoyed best-selling status with a focus on live-fire grilling throughout America.
Fast forward to today, Matt is back with a new cookbook “Butcher on the Block”, focusing on butchers across the country to combine the worlds of barbecue and grilling.
When he is not cooking, traveling, or writing, Moore is busy running EastWest Bottlers, a boutique fragrance and apothecary company he founded in 2011. To date, Moore maintains a distribution of over 200 retail specialty stores where his fragrances and books are sold. He has negotiated distribution and license agreements in over 30 countries, including big-box stores such as Belk, Dillards, and Bloomingdales – securing license products for Fortune 500 brands, as well as luxury European brands.
For those who love to grill, which I know the majority of us do, Matt’s new cookbook, “Butcher on the Block” is currently available for purchase online or at your local stores.
