In the hands of Ben O'Donoghue, the humble barbecue is a force to be reckoned with, offering everything from Mexican suckling pig to Caribbean jerked chicken. Whether your pride and joy is a wire rack and open fire, a sturdy kettle barbecue or a deluxe gas-fired hotplate, Ben's BBQ Bible is full of easy recipes to get the home fires burning. For celebrity chef, television presenter, author, and Fairy ambassador Ben O'Donoghue, cooking is a passion and a reflex. It's something he's done since childhood and it never ceases to give him pleasure or stimulate his imagination.
Ben started his career working in several top Australian restaurants before moving to London. For four years he worked at the famous River Café, before joining his mate, Jamie Oliver, at the exclusive Monte's Club as Executive Chef. After a few years abroad, Ben returned home to experience first-hand Australia's burgeoning food scene, which he still plays a major part in; his latest endeavour, Billy Cart Kitchen, is set to open in Brisbane in Summer 2013. Ben's television credits include four series of the internationally acclaimed food and travel program, Surfing the Menu, which he co-hosted with fellow chef, Curtis Stone. In his spare time he enjoys surfing, fly fishing and playing with his three children.
