Hey there, welcome to my corner of the internet! I’m Benjamin, a registered associate nutritionist from the rural depths of Somerset, UK but currently residing in Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.
Food has always fascinated me. One of my earliest and most vivid food-based memories was when I was old enough to reach the kitchen surface (and by reach, I mean precariously stand on a stall or folding chair) to flick through a very large and heavy hardback edition of Mrs Beeton’s Household Management: A Complete Cookery Book, to locate a recipe for shortcrust pastry or a Victoria sponge.
I grew up in rural Somerset, allowing my obsession with food to expand to the point where I hijacked my parent’s garden to grow vegetables and rear chickens for their eggs.
Fast forward a few years, I became incredibly interested in the science behind what we eat and how that impacts our health and have since graduated from Bournemouth University with a BSc (Hons) in nutrition.
