A love letter to one of the oldest, most richly varied food cultures of Europe: unwrap the food of Sicily

About the Author

Ben is the Culinary Director of the Stafford London in St James's. He oversees the food offering throughout the hotel including the Game Bird restaurant, the American bar and private dining. In September 2019 Ben opened Norma, a Sicilian-Moorish influenced restaurant on London's Charlotte Street, in a beautiful five storey Georgian townhouse. The restaurant features a bespoke raw bar serving Sicilian-style crudos and a first-floor bar serving seasonal, understated cocktails and a selection of Marsala served by the glass. Classically trained with over 20 years' experience, Ben spent his formative career working with Michelin starred chefs such as Jason Atherton and Stephen Terry at various ground-breaking London restaurants, learning classical techniques along with inspired culinary innovation. He went on to head up his own operations at the Italian restaurant Al Duca in St James, London, and the Crinan Hotel in the West Highlands. Ben appears regularly on TV including Saturday Kitchen, Sunday Brunch, and Masterchef and writes for Delicious, Guardian, Telegraph, Times, Noble Rot, Restaurant magazine, Chef magazine, and other publications. In 2012 Ben authored his first book Salt Yard Food & Wine. His second cookbook Grill, Smoke, BBQ was released Spring 2016 to great acclaim in the UK, and is now published in America, Australia, Canada, and Europe. Most recently, Moorish was published by Absolute in spring 2019, focusing on the cuisine and food culture of the southern Med. Ben lives in East London with his wife Nykeeta and his French bulldogs. @ben.tish / chefbentish.com
