Culinary powerhouse Ben is a font of creativity and energy. Having spent ten years working at 1,2, and 3-Michelin-starred restaurants, in five different countries, he then spent the past five years running his own creative dining concepts, events, and experiences, as well as winning multiple culinary awards in his spare time. Phew!
Inspired to cook by his oldest brother Andrew, Ben’s introduction to experimental cuisine was peanut butter and cucumber sandwiches, made by his father for school lunches - but you’ve no need to worry! His cooking style is delicious, playful, unpretentious and gimmick-free! He wants to introduce his cooking, approach, and vision to anyone willing to learn, and he plans to do it with his trademark infectious passion and uncompromising standards.
