Get to know me better
Calm, cool, collected and creative.
I have over 8 years experience cooking professionally across multiple different countries. My background includes a broad spectrum of fine dining with an emphasis on healthy dishes, which include vegan/vegetarian/pescatarian/keto diets. My style portrays a lot of European techniques incorporated with ethnic spices and flavours. Cooking with produce and proteins from the local region is what I strive for. I have cooked in three different wine regions around the world, one in California, one in Australia and one in New Zealand. Most recently, I have been working aboard super yachts as a sole chef, where I have developed my own menus and creations. Super yacht experience has also given me the ability to curate specific menus based on guests preferences. Traveling and cooking are my two passions, combining the two brings me complete satisfaction.

For me, cooking is...
Bringing people together to enjoy fine food with good company. Also, an art gallery you’re allowed to touch...with your tongue.
I learned to cook at...
Cloudy bay winery, New Zealand. Josef Chromy winery, Tasmania, Australia. Ponte winery, California. Chalets in the Swiss Alps. Onboard Superyachts.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Matthew McKinney of plant food and wine, Grant Achatz of Alinea.
A cooking secret...
Paying close attention to detail.

Ben is such a wonderful chef and the food was INCREDIBLE. I love that some of the fresh veggies came from his garden and he infused his own olive oil with parsley. Very cool touches. He catered to dietary needs and created a bespoke menu perfect for our meal. If you’re after a lovely evening for your friends or family and wonderful food, he delivers.
