BEN TISH: MOORISH
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.
Ben appears regularly on TV including Saturday Kitchen, Sunday Brunch, and Masterchef and writes for Delicious , The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Times, Noble Rot, Restaurant Magazine, Chef Magazine, and other publications.
Ben joins us with his third cook book "MOORISH" - the book focusses on the Moorish flavours and influences in the Southern Mediterranean including Sicily, Andalaucia and the Balearics.
Ben was most recently the Chef Director and Partner for the Salt Yard Group, including Salt Yard (Fitzrovia), Dehesa (Soho), Opera Tavern (Covent Garden), Ember Yard (Soho), and Veneta (St James) - a group of 5 modern Spanish / Italian restaurants in Central London serving award-winning food (all 2 AA rosettes and bib gourmands from michelin) in a relaxed environment. During his 11 years with the group, Ben drove the food offer, food operations, kitchen teams, and launches of 4 of the 5 restaurants in the group, where he established himself as cooking at the forefront of Spanish/Italian modern tapas scene. He is the Culinary director of the Stafford London in St James's and in September 2019 will open “Norma” a Sicilain-Moorish influenced restaurant on London's Charlotte street in a beautiful five storey Georgian townhouse.
Ben will be bringing a passion for outdoor cooking along to Ludlow and we're looking forward to welcoming him to the Fire Kitchen Stage, sponsored by Kadai Firebowls.
