Ben, one of CBs Mexico City correspondents, was born and raised in the Mexican capital. His family owned a restaurant, where he grew up, for about 40 years. In 2000 he moved to the US where he lived until 2010. While in the States he started blogging about Mexican food. His inspiration were the flavors and aromas of the food he cherished from his childhood memories. Since his return to Mexico he has been researching the regional foods and traditions of Mexico and worked as a culinary tour guide and consultant for different outlets. His favorite region of Mexico is Oaxaca, which he tries to visit as often as possible.
