About Amber Benham

Amber Benham is a graduate of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism who has reported on breaking news for The Wall Street Journal, war photography for The New York Times Lens blog and local history for Brooklyn Based. She most recently worked as the Online Editor for Edible Manhattan and Edible Brooklyn.
Emerging from the wheat fields of Kansas, Benham fled the Midwest at the age of 21 and came to New York to find her foodie niche. She fell in love with the city, the restaurants and her students in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. After teaching Spanish there for 3 years, she packed up her things and moved to Malaga, Spain. For two years she basked in the sun of the Costa del Sol and tried to master Andalucian cooking, but teaching English to get by wasn’t enough of a challenge. So now she’s back in the Big Apple, hoping to eat, cook and write about it in perfect AP style.
