All too often I’d enjoyed a lovely meal out, but couldn’t help but wonder where exactly my food had come from. It concerned me that I had no idea of the origin, the lifestyle or indeed the quality of the meat that I was putting into my body.
The more I thought about this, the more it bugged me and that’s when my restaurant dream started to take shape. A restaurant with its own livestock and a strong focus on Suffolk produce so that customers can follow the journey of their meat from birth, right through to the plate they are eating it from, to ensure they are only eating the finest local products.
This dream became a reality when I opened Ben’s.
