Cheese Journey

Monte Mathews was born with food and travel in his blood. His Grandfather was a hotelier, leading Monte to his first summer job as a bellboy at Chateau Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies. His business career took him to 6 continents where his fluency in French, Italian, English, and Spanish served him well.  He has stayed in accommodations ranging from tents to villas. After a career in advertising, he now explores the world looking for authentic experiences, great places to stay, and superb food.

Monte's passion for food comes from his family. His physician father read Gourmet Magazine aloud, corned his own beef, and enjoyed nothing more than a great dinner out. Monte’s mother loathed cooking and anything to do with the kitchen. As a result, Monte’s palate was developed as a child in the restaurants in Montreal. His interest in cooking soon became a real passion. Food and travel are the subjects of Monte’s Award-Winning blog, He also shares with HipSilver ways to make our lives more exciting with everything that food and travel can do to enrich our world.
