Plant-Based Food Coach Ben Mastracco

Ben Mastracco

Ben’s journey with food started at a young age.  His mom was a recipe developer and food stylist for over 30 years, and it was working in the kitchen with her where he fell in love with food.

Following some major injuries in high school,  Ben became very curious about health and wellness, and earned a bachelors degree in Nutrition and Food Science in 2011. After completing college, he worked as a food scientist at a processed food company for 6 years.  Ben has also won a number of awards as a recipe developer, assisted at a culinary school, led restaurant tours, and have eaten his way through the city of San Francisco.  Ben is also currently leading restaurant tours in Carlsbad, California with Carlsbad Food Tours, so he is eating his way through San Diego as well.
