Ben Tish steps down from the Stafford and Norma

Ben Tish has stepped down from his position as culinary director of the Stafford London and Norma after three years in the role.

Giovann Attard, who has been at Norma since its launch in 2019, will continue to lead the kitchen as executive head chef. At the Stafford London executive chef Jozef Rogulski will work alongside Lisa Goodwin-Allen to oversee the food offering at the Game Bird restaurant and the American Bar. Goodwin-Allen is also executive chef of the Michelin-starred Northcote in Lancashire, part of the Stafford Collection.

Stuart Procter, chief operating officer of the Stafford Collection, said: "I would like to thank Ben for his contribution to the Stafford Collection over recent years, and we wish him all the best for the future."

Posting on social media, Tish said: "It's been a fantastic few years especially my involvement opening Norma and seeing it blossom. But now it's time to move on and I've got some exciting plans and projects in the pipeline."

Tish joined the Stafford in 2018 to oversee the five-red-AA-star, 105-bedroom hotel's food offer as well as launch several new independent restaurants. He oversaw the opening of Norma in Fitzrovia, inspired by the food and culture of Sicily, in 2019.
