Vegeria aims to feed the masses and educate the city on issues like cultural preservation through food, healthy eating, urban gardening, farm-to-table movement, and organic seasonal farming.
Our key principle is the need to preserve the food of our ancestors and the indigenous food of the land. Chef Fred Anthony Garza believes our diet has changed, but our culture hasn't. We want to preserve our family's traditions of food, love and culture in a noble and ethical way. We want our children to know the recipes of our grandparents, and the love in which we all come from.
Fred was inspired by his Grandmas Rosalie's (right-side picture) recipes, legacy, and love. He wants to share that with a new generation of people. "If we don't keep cooking the food of our ancestors no one will. If we want our children and grandchildren to know what real Tex-Mex food is we must keep creating it, sharing it and serving it, and letting it evolve. We must be proud of our food and culture."
