The Culinarian is a private chef and bespoke catering company servicing Melbourne and regional Victoria.


Originally hailing from Western Australia's south west, Executive Chef and founder of The Culinarian, Ben Davies, hails from a region renowned for its fine wines, stunning beaches, boutique breweries and sumptuous restaurants. It was here that Ben first developed a passion for exceptional food and service.​​


On completion of his apprenticeship, Ben embarked upon a 5 year journey working at a host of high profile establishments in London whilst travelling extensively throughout Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.


While Ben's travels gave him an insight into world food and culture, his time in London provided the opportunity to work in top tier kitchens and to be involved in a number of high profile events including film premier's, product launches, festivals, exhibitions, celebrity weddings, birthdays and events.​


Upon returning to Western Australia, Ben progressed through a number of senior roles in some of Perth's best known venue's before relocating to Victoria in 2012 where, drawing upon the considerable knowledge and experience gained over the years of work and travel, the foundations were laid and The Culinarian was born.
