Lindsay D. Mattison
Hi, I’m Lindsay D. Mattison, a Chef turned freelance writer living in Durango, CO. After graduating from Cascade Culinary School, I became the executive chef at Jackson’s Corner in Bend, OR, where I remained from 2013-2016. When I left Oregon, I decided to turn my passion for food into a writing career. In addition to recipe development, I also write articles that share restaurant secrets, educate home cooks with time saving tips and tricks, and review cooking gadgets and equipment.
In addition to writing for Reviewed (a USA Today company), Taste of Home, Cooktop Cove, SkinnyMs, Wide Open Eats, and DGO Magazine, I’m also working on a cookbook with Rainshadow Organics farm in Bend, OR. The book aims to teach home cooks how to craft beautiful meals without a recipe, tentatively titled “The Art of Bricolage: Cultivating Confidence and Creativity in the Kitchen.” While spending time on the farm writing this book, coupled with my interest in organic and sustainable food practices, I was inspired to find the farmer in myself. I’m currently enjoying the trials and errors of small plot farming on my half acre lot in the beautiful Animas Valley.
I would love to chat about food and recipe writing opportunities! Please don’t hesitate to reach out.
