ChefPassport: How the Idea of Online Cooking Classes Was Born

This is a short story about our founder, Matteo Ressa, and his passion for food, travel and discovery, and the idea of online cooking classes was.

Before founding ChefPassport, Matteo worked for 15 years in digital product development for major companies worldwide. But, his true passion called to him. Food!

From Travels to Vision

  • Unite food lovers and cooks from around the world
  • Create authentic experiences and make international cuisine more accessible
  • Use local ingredients as a means to create global flavors
  • Deliver different cooking experiences that allow you to have the world on your plate every day
These ideas came to Matteo after he visited a street food stand in Thailand in 2017. Upon his return to Europe, he knew what he had to do – dedicate his life to ideas he believes in. Spending 2018 saving up money to fund his dream, Matteo realized he needed to learn all he could about running a business. In 2019, Matteo found a pre-seed startup accelerator, Founder Institute, which gave him and a cohort of aspiring entrepreneurs the support needed to pitch, scale and grow. Shortly after joining the program, Matteo quit his job to dedicate his life to his dream, and since then ChefPassport’s vision has become solidified.
Today, Matteo has a team of six passionate food enthusiasts working hard to bring the world of flavor to kitchens around the globe through a network of 33 Professional Chefs and Home Cooks, as well as 30 Online Cooking Classes offering more than 100 dishes to explore.
