Using traditional recipes, Ben will introduce you to the amazing world of Mexican food with easy-to-follow recipes and substitutes for those more difficult to find authentic ingredients.

Ben Milbourne got started on Masterchef Australia. His food style is simple-take ingredients and recipes that will bring people together, combine them in a way that is interesting but achievable. And above all cook it because you love it. You have to fall in love with the process, the process of discovering the ingredients, developing the idea, creating the dish. Sharing the flavor and discussing the outcome is what food is. "Cooking with friends is always better. Cooking has always been the way I open up, if mum, dad or my brothers and sister ever wanted to have a deep and meaningful chat that would get me in the kitchen". Before entering Masterchef, Ben worked as a secondary school teacher, teaching sport and chemistry.
