How Ben Shewry Dads

With his famed restaurant Attica, Ben Shewry is a guy that has made an indelible mark on the culinary world through his creativity, dedication & undoubtedly some really deep thought. As a mate, Hamish has been lucky enough to see Ben apply this same thoughtful approach to his Dadding over the years, and in this episode he really does get some golden practical tips on opt-in-parenting from Ben. We just made up “opt-in-parenting”... not sure it’s a thing? But maybe it could be?

In this episode, Ben shares some of his tried and tested techniques for connecting with kids through enshrining one-on-one time. He discusses encountering feelings of frustration as a parent, and being ill-equipped to deal with some of the challenges of being a relatively young dad. And in one particularly insightful moment, he discusses the power of forgiveness for not only your kids… but also yourself. It’s some deep stuff from Ben… but, it is also super practical and simple - and dare we say… delicious. Ben! What a guy!

Show Note: This interview was recorded before The Bear came out, otherwise we would have asked Ben a bunch of questions about that as well. And Hame would have said “Yes chef!” the whole time
