About Chef Matt Tulpa:
Salt & Saffron is the pop-up dinner creative outlet for Chef Matt Tulpa. He’s the in-house chef for Brighton’s certified organic Stone Coop Farm, where he presents true farm-to-table meals andteaches cooking classes. Salt & Saffron has been featured at (revolver) in Hamtramck and The Oakland in Ferndale. Launching soon is Matt’s next culinary venture – Vicecream Detroit, an ice cram truck full of innovative treats like you’ve never seen. After his first year of college, he started washing dishes at a small restaurant in Milford, his hometown. Since then, Matt has maintained an obsessive curiosity to absorb all-things-culinary and feeds his intellectual, creative, and entrepreneurial appetites as an independent private chef, consultant, chef at Stone Coop Farm, with Salt & Saffron & now Vicecream Detroit, too. We are thrilled to work with Matt and can’t wait to see what he brings to the table.
