Ben Herrera grew up surrounded by food in Mexico City, where his family owned a restaurant for 40 years. In 2007, while living in the U.S., Ben realized that Mexican food is often misunderstood North of the Border, and he began blogging about authentic Mexican food. Since returning to Mexico City in 2010, he has continued to write about his culinary adventures and Mexico’s food culture on his blog, What’s Cooking, Mexico? He is also part of Eat Mexico, a culinary tour service that shows travelers visiting Mexico the wonders of eating on the street, at markets and in other non-mainstream venues.
