Top Shelf Catering and Events is operated with over 25 years of experience and talent. Matthew J. Walsh (owner), along with his partners, has focused on providing exquisite food that is beautifully displayed and elegantly served in a friendly and efficient manner.
Matt Walsh’s trip through the culinary world began when he graduated in 1984 from culinary school in Joliet, Illinois. He apprenticed under Chef Don Miller, National Chef of the Year ‘03. He then worked at hotels in Nashville, Detroit, Chicago, and Las Vegas. After graduating in 1988 from UNLV’s hotel program, he worked as a chef at properties in Tokyo, Tel Aviv and London’s Cafe Royale. Matt was then hired as a chef instructor at Orlando’s Valencia College and taught for 6 years. He then continued to hone his cooking skills and love for ice sculpting. Matt later founded Tanya & Matt’s Ice Creamiest and Ice Sculptures in 1991 and has been operating in the same location for the past 24 years. His culinary skills include ice sculptures, wedding cakes, fruit carvings and fine dining. He has also been a certified working pastry chef (CWPC) by the American Culinary Federation. He has also traveled to over 50 countries.
We can handle any event from 50 – 1,000 guests.
