Ben Shewry & the humanity of food - pt 1
Listen now
How does the owner of one of the world's best restaurants pivot during a global crisis? Born in New Zealand Ben Shewry's philosophy is rooted in indigenous ingredients and his restaurant Attica has received numerous awards, but none of this matters to Ben, what matters more is his connection to his heritage, the people he surrounds himself with every day and the 'great gift' of cooking. In part 1 Ben talks to Gary Mehigan about life back home, nearly getting beat up for dating the wrong girl and the dish he once tried to make that was an attempt at replicating drowning.
