Get to know me better
I am the Eco-Chef who is also growing food near the north pole, and composting with worms.
Benjamin L. Vidmar, the founder of Polar Permaculture, is an eco-chef and foodie from Cleveland, Ohio. Cruise ship kitchens and distinguished culinary positions took him around the world and he worked for 18 years as a professional chef in the US, Asia, and Scandinavia. He visited Svalbar for the first time in 2007 and instantly fell in love with the Arctic. He will take care of all of your food needs here in Svalbard.
For me, cooking is...
about my passion for food, and sharing it with my clients.
I learned to cook at...
Le Cordon Bleu Pittsburgh, PA
A role model in the kitchen is...
My Mom, and grandmother.
A cooking secret...
Love... The more love you put into the meal, then the more people enjoy it.
