My guest this week on Desert Island Dishes is Ben Lebus.
Ben is the founder of the online cooking and content platform – Mob Kitchen whose mission it is to help students and young professionals prepare restaurant-quality meals on a budget. Through everything from recipe videos to cook-alongs and competitions, MOB encourages a laid back and ‘get stuck in’ attitude in the kitchen.
After noticing that none of his student friends were cooking, upon graduating from university, with no background in food, Ben armed with nothing but a kitchen, a camera and some recipe ideas he started creating overhead videos that people could actually cook. Ever since then the company has earned a loyal and ever-growing following of well over a million fans – the MOB.
With four Amazon bestselling cookbooks under their belt, Mob Kitchen have just released a new book called Comfort Mob.
“ONE ONLINE PUBLICATION I CAME ACROSS DESCRIBED BEN’S STYLE AS A “MASHUP OF HUGH GRANT’S PUBLIC SCHOOLBOY CHARM AND JAMIE OLIVER’S ZEAL AND RELISH FOR FOOD”.
