Since 1997, Chef José Alfredo Cruz has poured his passion for all things culinary into every dish that he meticulously crafts. After returning from Vermont in 2001, where he attended the New England Culinary Institute, José moved back into the neighborhood where he grew up, Lavaca. It was here that he brought plant-based dishes to potlucks for friends, family and neighbors to enjoy. With the encouragement of the community and his partner, Tiffany, potlucks turned into larger events.

 

 

Steadily, Señor Veggie has grown into a successful catering company that emphasizes delicious, healthy and compassionate food. At the end of 2012, Señor Veggie joined the Quarry Farmers & Ranchers market to provide delectable Vegan eats to the masses. Along with making new friends, we have been able to open a brick and mortar shop. Señor Veggie is committed to maintaining the attention to detail in every bite that has been the trademark since its inception.

JOSé alfredo cruz

CHEF

José is a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute in Burlington, Vermont. While attending the classically French school, he specialized in the art of the saucier. His sauces and delicately sautéed items are out of this world! With over 22 years of cooking experience, he puts his skills to good use creating delectable dishes that celebrate a plant-based diet. His philosophy is vegan food should be so tasty, that whether you come to the table as a dedicated vegan or not, you will consider the lifestyle after enjoying his food!

Tiffany singleton

GENERAL MANAGER/ BAKER

Tiffany emphasizes the importance of living a compassionate life and brings that passion into all that Señor Veggie represents. With a BA in Art History and Criticism from the University of Texas at San Antonio, her eye for colorful palettes and local art can be enjoyed throughout the building. All of her baked goods ooze wholesomeness and she regularly takes recipes that are difficult to find Vegan, like fresh baklava, and creates a original tasty treat.

 

“Veganism is not about giving anything up or losing anything; it is about gaining the peace within yourself that comes from embracing nonviolence and refusing to participate in the exploitation of the vulnerable.”
