The final instalment of our three-part podcast series with Visit California, we catch up with executive chef Matthew Beaudin who is at the helm of the innovative, sustainably-driven food program at Monterey Bay Aquarium. Thanks to Matt and his team, the Aquarium has become a leader in the conservation field and is making waves with its environmental efforts around the world. Big Little Lies fans will recognise the jellyfish from the silver screen too.
Chef Matt gives us his take on why Monterey is a big city with a small town feel and glides us through the winery tours we should raise a glass to in Carmel, the need-to-know restaurants with breathtaking beaches in the county or the hikes and trails we should plot out.
The Upgrade co-hosts Fleur and Amira are primed for a coastal getaway that packs a serious punch when it comes to food and wine.
