A photo of Ben Ambridge

Ben studied professional cookery and after travelling the world, he has settled down in Cornwall working as the Executive Chef at The Longstore. One of his most memorable experiences at Cornwall College was being nominated for a City and Guilds achievement award by his lecturer. He went on to win the award, attending the presentation at Buckingham Palace.

"The course covered all areas needed to equip me with the knowledge to enter a professional kitchen. I traveled around the world with the skills I had learnt. I settled back down in Cornwall and have worked my way up to executive chef, overseeing 3 kitchens. I write menus, train staff, team building and quality control of all sites."
