It’s a dream job, but someone has to do it.
Matt Armendariz is the creator of MattBites.com, a food blog started in 2005. Since then, Matt has been named as one of the top ten food blogs by The Times Online, and has been featured in Bon Appetit, appeared on Martha Stewart, and the accolades keep coming.

Reading Matt’s blog is like reading emails from a really good friend, albeit a friend you are highly envious of. Matt has dined at hawker stands in Singapore and clipped grapes at Veuve Cliquot’s vineyards. But he doesn’t seem to let it go to his head. For him, it’s about experiencing all that food has to offer, from the immediate satisfaction that comes from cooking and eating, to the friendships forged by the breaking of bread.
But what makes Matt’s blog stand out is his photography. These beautiful images, styled by his partner (and former Passable cover boy), Adam Pearson, are fantastical food porn. We here at Passable have even once featured one of Matt’s images on our website, envious as we were of the subject matter. Matt has done photography for such clients as Pom Wonderful, Whole Foods, and Fiji Water.
Matt was kind enough to answer some questions for us for one of our Passable Interviews, as well as show us some of his amazing photography.
