Chef Ben Thomas

Ben Thomas is a classic-French trained chef with experience at some of Philadelphia's top dining spots. Ben attended French culinary school at the L'Academie de Cuisine outside of Washington D.C., studying under Michelin star chef Gerard Pangaud. Since moving to Philadelphia in 2007, Benjamin has worked as a celebrity caterer in New York with Callahan Catering, at the Rittenhouse Hotel's acclaimed Restaurant LaCroix, and at one of the Philadelphia area's 2012 top new American restaurants, Sycamore, in Lansdowne.

In 2010, Ben joined his wife Elena on assignment in France; there he was invited via Chef Pangaud to chef at a bistro in Paris. While living in France, they also had the opportunity to travel extensively across Europe, exploring outdoor food markets and regional cuisine. From France, Ben and Elena moved to Mexico City where Ben delved into new ingredients and techniques. These experiences became the inspiration for Cerise.
