Get to know me better
I love to leave an experience that is not easily forgotten in the taste buds of my guests.
As an undergraduate of law in the Republic of Benin, I launched a breakfast business popularly known as Ben’s Toast which mainly focused on toast bread, which subsequently metamorphosed into Ben’s Cuisine with a wide range of options.
After the completion of my degree in the Republic of Benin, I decided to venture into the culinary business full time, as my goal was to become a professional chef.

I further went on to work at Craft Gourmet by Lou Baker, the prestigious Eko Hotel and suites, and MaaMee foods limited a commercial kitchen where I worked before going to further my training as a Chef.

I have appeared on the popular Television Continental Show, Wake up Nigeria where he cooks for popular Nigeria’s Stand up Comedian Justice Nuagbe popularly known as Ushbebe, the world acclaimed first female talking drummer Aralola Olumuyiwa popularly known as Ara, and many more.
My influence is from my mother’s enthusiasm towards the art of cooking, and notable Chefs like Chef Raphael Duntoye, Chef Fregz, Thomas Keller, Gordon Ramsay, Massimo Bottura, and Chef Stone.
