Hi I'm Ben - an Australian, a reformed lawyer, and a food nerd otherwise known as ‘A Man and His Sandwich’.
For as long as I can remember, I've been on the quest for the world's best sandwich. Documenting my adventures along the way, I've published articles, recorded podcasts, and spoken on panels all about sandwiches. That quest brought me to New York, and to tour guiding in 2017, so that I could share my adventures with sandwich fans from across the world.
Since that time I have created and hosted several food and drink walking tours in New York, showcasing the best sandwiches NYC has to offer, whilst also exploring the fascinating history of food in the city. My latest venture – an online Sandwich Masterclass – brings those walking tours into peoples kitchens to cook and chat all things sandwich.
