#039: Vegan Feast by V

Episode Summary

Chef Veronica Velasquez has gone from cooking corn tortillas in her mother's kitchen, to presenting award-winning oyster mushroom street tacos. She creates Latinx inspired dishes that remind people pursuing a vegan lifestyle doesn't mean giving up the culture you grew up with. When a dog adorably named "Hot Sauce" shifted Chef V's perspective on where our food comes from, her food became her activism. Now she creates plant-based masterpieces in pop-ups around the DC area, while never forgetting her Salvadorian roots.
