2016 Perth Chefs

Ben Milbourne ~ Master Chef & TV Host

Ben Milbourne ~ Master Chef & TV Host

Ben Milbourne appeared on MasterChef 2012, the series which his best mate Andy Allen went on to win. In the years since the TV juggernaut, Milbourne has produced two cookbooks – last year’s Mexican Craving and Tasmanian Trail – and travelled the country and the world. Ben now has his own TV show on Channel 10, ‘Ben’s Menu’, which has just been nominated for a Logie! This exciting new foodie series is filmed at Ben’s picturesque farmhouse in northwest Tasmania. Find Ben on stage at the Food & Wine Expo, or purchase a Goelet Celebrity Dining Room ticket to enjoy a degustation with Ben himself!

Ben attributes his love of food to his grandmother, she used to bake for the 40 plus tradesmen employed by the family business each morning. He remembers making scones with her after school and her cookie jar full of ANZAC biscuits. Cooking wasn't where Ben headed initially went with his career; as teaching beckoned. Masterchef Season 4 was a turning point for Ben and his passion for food. Since the show, opportunities to continue working with food has been widespread with Ben appearing on national morning breakfast shows, guest appearances on 'Ready, Steady, Cook' and 'Everyday Gourmet'.

Ben's first cookbook, Mexican Craving, was launched in November 2013. His second book, based on Tasmanian producers, was released in September, 2014. He currently has an ongoing column in his local newspaper and a 'Talking Food' segment on his local radio station. Ben's TV show, Ben's Menu, began airing weekdays on channel 10 in September, 2014.

Ben's personality and down to Earth approach has made him popular with people of all ages. His philosophy is unassuming; "My food style is simple; take ingredients and recipes that will bring people together, combine them in a way that is interesting but achievable. Above all cook it because you love it. You have to fall in love with the process. The process of discovering the ingredients, developing the idea, creating the dish, sharing the flavour and discussing the outcome; this is what food is all about".

With a succulent 6-course degustation menu each paired with a matching wine, this is the menu of the year with the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal to learn all Ben’s secrets in cooking and more.
