Chef Benjamin Voisin
Originally from Le Mans, a small city near Paris, Chef Benjamin Voisin moved to Bordeaux to follow his passion in culinary and hospitality management. During this time, he participated in a year-long training program in Colorado at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa, and upon his return to the Hyatt Regency La Manga Club located in Murcia, Spain, he was soon promoted to Executive Sous Chef overseeing all twenty of their restaurants.
In November 2011, Ben moved to the island of Nevis in the Caribbean to become the Executive Chef at Montpelier Plantation & Beach, a member of the renowned Relais & Châteaux group whose membership features some of the best chefs in the world. After gaining three years’ experience at this prestigious Relais & Chateaux property, Chef Ben moved with his wife Valeria to Florida, the two partnering with Timothy and Meredith Hoffman in opening Fathoms Restaurant & Bar and The French Press coffee shop and bakery. He joined Chef Fabrice Deletrain in the kitchen at Fathoms. Chef Ben aims to use the freshest ingredients, including freshly caught fish and locally grown fruit and vegetables, and transform them into amazing dishes. In late 2017, the four partners decided to open a new modern and chic restaurant, Gather, in Tarpon Point Marina, Cape Coral. Alongside the same management team from Fathoms Restaurant & Bar, The French Press and Black Salt Culinary, Ben helped create one of the most unique and stylish waterfront restaurants in the Cape.
