On a personal level, my barbecue skills have been improved immensely by the opportunity to learn from the Master!

John Porter – Director at ShielPorter Communications, Freelance journalist and writer

I have known Ben Bartlett for nearly a decade, initially during my time as Editor of the Morning Advertiser, and always found him the consummate food professional. He is extremely knowledgeable about food trends and what sells in pubs. He is also a barbecue expert (and acknowledged as one of the world’s top barbecuists). He has written numerous articles for me and they have always been well received by readers. Ben is enthusiastic and very easy to work with.

Andrew Pring – Editor and writer. Consultant University of Cambridge

Ben’s personal and coaching style allowed him to inspire many of our lessees to develop their food offer and he used his extensive knowledge to grow lessee profits. Ben has a massive network of contacts in the food industry who he used effectively to enrich and develop our food support marketing. I do not know of anyone more passionate and knowledgeable than Ben in this field.

Today British food is inspired by our long multicultural heritage but also pays homage to some real gems of traditional British dishes and there’s a lot to be proud of.
