After training as a chef in the Hotel Rotes Ross in Halle, he was promoted to head chef and had to do it with as some are colleagues. In the time he has started, "to collect the words that had been blasted out". Matz is not listed just words and phrases, but also typical word tribes, which he introduced in the vernacular firmly.
