Ben grew up surrounded by food. His family owned a restaurant in Mexico City for about 40 years and some of his most cherished memories from that period of his life are related to food. These aromas, flavors and colors of the food stayed with him even when he moved a couple of thousand miles away to the U.S. He started blogging in 2007 as he started to cooking authentic Mexican food in his American kitchen, and realized that Mexican food is very misunderstood in the U.S. Returning to Mexico in 2010, he has started to share more about the food, scenes, and cultural traditions of what has been cited by UNESCO as a world intangible cultural heritage.
