Ben Starr is a chef, travel/food writer, beer brewer, cheese maker, chicken wrangler, deep woods forager, and urban farmer in the Dallas area. He has cooked with and for a variety of celebrity chefs from Gordon Ramsay to Bobby Flay to Rachael Ray, and has appeared on CBS, Fox, Food Network, and HGTV. He is co-chef at FRANK, a hyper-local underground dining experiment that the Dallas Morning News called "the best restaurant in DFW," and has the highest Yelp rating of any restaurant in Texas. He's as much a culinary anthropologist as he is a chef, focusing on the humble farmhouse and street foods of the world...foods that have a story and a legacy stretching back through the generations, and which have helped shape cultures and identities. But he embraces new technology and science that allows for a more perfect execution of those ancient culinary traditions. He is happiest tromping through the woods with his puppy, plucking morels or ramps and dodging poison ivy.
