    Benjamin’s career started at the award-winning Sydney restaurant, The Watermark, under the guidance of Executive Chef Kenneth Leung. After his apprenticeship, Benjamin moved on to senior positions at properties including Great Keppel Island Resort, The Parkroyal Perth, Angsana Spa Resort and the acclaimed, Banyan Tree Resort in Indonesia.

    In recent years, Benjamin was introduced to international audiences as co-host (with Vic Cherikoff and Mark McCluskey) of the Australian TV cooking show, Dining Downunder  which has now broadcast to 40 countries throughout the world. This unique series explores Australian cuisine including indigenous ingredients and showcases special places around Australia. The show has been the catalyst for the increased use of authentic Australian foods in international restaurants, hotels, resorts, on-board cruise ships and in corporate event menus.

    In 2004, together with Vic Cherikoff, he co-produced his first book, The Dining Downunder Cookbook.
