Ben Norum

Ben is Londonist’s food and drink editor, and can generally be found in a new restaurant, pub or bar filling his face trying out what they have to offer. He’s also written on all things edible and drinkable in the capital for publications including Time Out, Square Meal and the Evening Standard’s food magazine. He moved to London from Chichester — via the University of Portsmouth — back in 2008, and lived all over the place before settling in Kennington, where he likes to smoke his own food when he gets the chance. The neighbours don’t always like it, though. Follow Ben on Twitter @BenNorum.
