Dine with Michelin Star Chef Matthew Accarrino

Matthew Accarrino is the nationally recognized chef of SPQR in San Francisco, CA, with a Michelin Star rating. You could say Matthew literally fell into cooking, growing up he had dreamed of being a professional cyclist. After a leg injury that left him learning to walk again and through a long recovery, he found his other life’s passion, cooking. His unique culinary style draws inspiration from his Italian heritage, personal experience and classical training with some of America’s best chefs. Today Matthew remains an avid cyclist, when not in the kitchen you can find him on the roads of Napa Valley on his bicycle or supporting the world of professional cycling through working with several teams. Matthew always enjoys opportunities to combine his two life passions, cooking and cycling.
