Originally trained as a chef, Benjamin worked at a Swiss casino before joining the Grand Hotel ten years ago as a commis chef in the Mirabelle. During a period of refurbishment he moved to lounge service and enjoyed working ‘front of house’ and meeting the public so much that he made a career change and worked his way through the ranks to become Assistant Lounge Manager before rejoining the Mirabelle as Restaurant Manager four years ago.
