"I have known Judy and her work for many years. She worked at my cooking school in the past. She is a not only a conscientious worker and a superb pastry chef but she has a great palette."
Susan B. Samson, Owner, Sakonnet Vineyards
"In my role as Healthy Eating Specialist/Director of Catering, I have never used any walnuts but black walnuts since Sweet Solutions introduced me to the mind-blowing combination of aged tawny port with a crostada of apples, black walnuts and Medjool date jam. The port's caramel notes greatly enhance the nuts' natural fragrance and taste. Brava!"
Lisa Caldwell, Whole Foods Market
"Judy and I worked together at a high end hotel restaurant on Beacon Hill, and within days of meeting me, she'd taught me much about the layers of flavor that result from pairing fine pastry (and even raspberry souffles) with sweet wines. Her palate and her passion are heavenly to be around."
Juliana Lyman, GM, Savenor's
"I have had occasion to use My Sweet Solutions often over the years, and I have found Judy Mattera to be the consummate professional. I was reminded of her amazing palate recently, at Boston's French Cultural Center, where she paired her Bitterswet Chocolate Tart with Banyuls and blew the room away. A superb talent."
Ellie O'Keefe, Nestle Waters North America
"I often partnered with Judy on food and wine pairings while she was consulting for the Mondavi family in the early 2000's. I still vividly remember how she matched fig cakes with a Chilean Carmenere; far and away the best combination I have ever tasted."
Robert Lippman, Wine Tasting Event Coordinator
"Reasons why I endorse Judy Mattera: she knows her stuff and she clearly derives enormous pleasure from her work. I've seen Judy in professional situations like classes and tastings, and I've seen her in collegial situations. At all times, Judy is professional, polite, good-humored, kind and genuine."
