Ben's passion for good food stems from his rural childhood experimenting with an abundance of homegrown produce. An inspiring and accomplished chef, Ben relishes the energy and creativity of busy restaurant kitchens. Working with professional chefs for over twenty years has made him an expert in seeking out the most delicious and versatile ingredients.
Ben and the Somerset Foodie team are committed to sharing this knowledge and passion for creative cookery with you. Shop our ingredients and follow our video recipes. Ben is on a mission to transform the meals you create at home, bring the secrets of the professional kitchen to your family table and take you on a new food adventure every day.
We care passionately about our carbon footprint, so we pack all our raw wholefood ingredients in 100% compostable wood-pulp bags and use biodegradable paper labels.
We aim to offer a realistic alternative to the price-driven, ultra-convenient shopping experience of the supermarket 'big guns' that we have all grown used to.
Our mission is to encourage more people to shop locally for good food and to create sustainable diversification within the food industry.
Here at Somerset Foodie we hope we can play a small but significant part of the local food revolution.
"Food is at the heart of families and of friendship. It is a vital shared experience that bonds human beings together… Cooking for someone is an act of generosity, and receiving that food with thanks demonstrates respect and gratitude... A good meal shared allows us to re-set our perspective on the world, to remind ourselves what is really important."
The idea of making sushi can be a little intimidating, particularly when you hear stories of 15-year sushi chef apprenticeships. The truth is, it's pretty straightforward. You can experiment with loads of different fillings - they are not hard to find in your local shop, and if you're not a fan of handling raw fish, then use smoked fish or just vegetables instead. You could also try different meat fillings like hoisin duck or char sui pork if you're feeling adventurous.
