First off, I think it’s weird that everyone refers to themselves in the third person on their websites, so I’m just going to skip that part, and tell you a little bit more about myself in my own words.

My journey with food started at a young age. My mom has been a recipe developer and food stylist for over 30 years, and it was working in the kitchen with her where I really fell in love with food. I lived in a home that was filled with any ingredient you could think of, and it didn’t take long before I started pulling books off the shelf, and cooking up a storm.

Following some major injuries in high school, I became very curious about health and wellness, and earned a bachelors degree in Nutrition and Food Science in 2011. Following college, I worked as a food scientist at a processed food company for 6 years, where I was able to experience a side of food that most people will never get to see. Along the way, I won a number of awards as a recipe developer, assisted at a culinary school, led restaurant tours, and have eaten my way through the city of San Francisco.

Ben Mastracco Food Coaching is the culmination of all of my unique experiences in the food industry, and all of the lessons I’ve learned along the way. It’s truly my pleasure to teach you, and to learn from you.
