#237: Matty Matheson
Matty Matheson on Building a Motorcycle With Your Friends, Taking Photos of Everything, Drinking Lots of Water, and more.
Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked Matty Matheson to share a taste of his taste on Perfectly Imperfect.
Matty Matheson is a Canadian chef, restaurateur, and food personality best known for his recipe videos and over-the-top personality. I first found Matty nearly a decade ago from his videos on Vice’s Munchies, It's Suppertime!, and Dead Set on Life, but over the last few years he’s put out multiple cookbooks, started sharing videos on his own Youtube channel, opened multiple Toronto restaurants (one had an Architectural Digest video on it), and made his own cookware and workwear lines. Lucky for us, Matty is here to tell us what he’s been into.

🦅🏍 Build a motorcycle with your friends
Do something with your friends that is trying and difficult. Working over alot of problems and learning from other people is important. Building something as powerful and freeing as a motorcycle is an incredible thing.
💦🚰 Drink lots of water
You need to drink at least 4x 55oz of water a day. I drink 500oz a day. Its a lot, you should too. Moisturise from within!!!! Stay wet
🫂🙅♂️ Dont be friends with everybody.
YES to new friends, NO to dud friends, NO to friends that don’t add to your life, you want to be around people that truly inspire you that you genuinely love. Don’t misunderstand what true friends are. Keep your circle small and keep your circle strong. Give as much as you take in relationships, keep it reciprocal.
💪💯 JUST TRY - my mantra.
You should just try a little harder at being better at everything that you do, even if it is to rest. I don’t rest often, but once I find some balance I will.
🗺👤 Go on a vacation by yourself
Traveling alone is important for people. Go find yourself, allow yourself to find your space. Go for a bike ride, get in your car, get in a kayak and drift down a river. Being able to spend time alone in a world where everything pushing at you is key. I like to eat in restaurants alone and be by myself. It gives you self awareness and understand the space that you are, the person that you are. Gotta take a step back from the scene and be a nobody sometimes.
🛒🛍 BUYING VINTAGE
Going into a vintage store and finding the perfect t-shirt, the perfect pant, jacket or hat is one of the greatest feelings in the world. See for yourself!
🤳 📸 😬 TAKE PHOTOS OF EVERYTHING
I have 129k photos on my camera roll. Is that alot? I have almost 10k selfies on here.
