We are so excited to feature Chef Zarela Martinez for our very first supper club event. Ms. Martinez, a James Beard Award nominee, restaurateur and cookbook author, will introduce us to the cuisine of Veracruz, Mexico. Veracruzano cooking blends ingredients and techniques of native Mexicans with Spanish and West African influence.

Ms. Martinez learned cooking from her grandmother and is the mother of another famous Mexican chef who can be seen in a variety of cooking shows including Masterchef. Can you guess who?

Musical Talent:

Leti Garza is a lady “found in translation.” Raised in a music-filled home in Houston, TX, the family helped shape her aesthetic sensibilities from the start. As a girl, she was enchanted by the music of her aunt, internationally-acclaimed singer Eva Garza and her contemporaries. The gentle tempo of the bolero and the richness of Eva’s voice stirred in young Leti a poetic sentimentality that marks her music to this day. 

Originally trained as a dancer, Leti is a riveting live performer. She commands the stage with the poise and charm of songstresses from a bygone era.
