Chef Ben Prior will cook at Porthleven Food Festival 2019

Chefs’ Theatre presented by Proper Job – 1:15pm – Sunday 28 April

Head Chef Ben Prior has 20 years catering experience starting straight from school. Although he has no official training, he has worked with people who are passionate about food, wine and service. He was trained in all aspects of the trade from KP to the Bar at the famous Le Talbooth restaurant in Dedham, Essex were he worked for seven years. After a further nine years ‘up the line’ and a year travelling, he followed in his Grandad’s footsteps and moved to Cornwall.

There’s something classy but rather lovable about his restaurant, Ben’s Cornish Kitchen, an affable bistro-style eatery on Marazion’s main street. Inside, thick stone walls add a rustic edge to proceedings, although all eyes are on Ben Prior’s “unbelievably priced” menus – a compendium of great-value dishes displaying a “fabulously inventive use of local and seasonal ingredients”.
