My training is French but my approach is contemporary Canadian, emphasizing seasonality and sustainability.
After ten years in the hospitality industry I have decided to offer my services to private clients. I started cooking at a small French bistro in Mississauga, afterwards moving to Toronto where I cooked at Hammersmith's, Greta Solomon's Dining Room, The Ceili Cottage and as the catering director at the Harbourfront Centre. I also have experience as an oyster shucker and with wine pairing. Please note that all menus and dishes listed here are meant to give an idea of my style, each dinner and experience is customized to the client.
Chef Ben and Hannah were awesome! The food was delicious, their etiquette and professionalism was off the charts. From the first communication to the moment they left we had a great experience with Chef Ben. Highly recommended.
Chef Ben prepared a surprise anniversary dinner for my brother and his wife. They were amazed about how delicious/tasteful everything was. Ben was fun, creative and was able to create a menu based on my budget. I would definitely recommend him.
