Or do you have an existing business – one that needs help, or one that you’re looking to push forward to even greater success with a fresh injection of new ideas? Perhaps your work atmosphere feels a little flat, your team need inspiration, your menu needs shaking up or your kitchen could be more efficient and cost-effective?
“Ben and I worked together on a couple of projects; I found him to be passionate and very keen to get stuck into challenges and bring left-field thinking to most scenarios.
He delivered a superb evening dinner for our CEO and senior management team at short notice. His attention to detail with ingredients was impressive and he created innovative recipes which showcased in new ways the stock products we were launching.
Ben is comfortable working in unusual environments and so was at ease in a new kitchen with his team with only a few hours to deliver the 8-course tasting menu.
Although his style is energetic and fast moving, often with a million thoughts at any one time, for those looking for alternative and new approaches Ben has a lot to bring to the table.”
"Globalista Konyha / Globalist Kitchen worked with Ben in July 2014. We invited him to Hungary to cook an amazing pop-up at Lake Balaton and two dinners in Budapest, in a secret garden.
His set menus have a perfect flow because he knows what he wants to achieve with a dinner (if you can keep up with the plates, his plating ideas and the amount of ingredients). We have never met any other chef who cooked more than 7 courses. Ben especially likes to play with some basic senses, like touching, smelling, tasting.
It doesn't matter for him if it is a professional kitchen or a mobile kitchen in a garden, the result is the same. The guests didn't really know what to expect but at the end everything comes together and it really gives an extra pleasure when you realise that everything had a meaning. The potato triples its taste, the pork belly melts in the mouth and the beans can be the queen of the menu. This is why his cooking is magical."
