Cesar Perez, longtime sous chef of The Whiskey Jar, and Yuliana Perez Vasquez, most recently of Keswick Hall, prepare family recipes from her native Veracruz and his home state of Puebla. Veracruz is on the coast and known for its seafood while Puebla is known for its chiles rellenos.
“We want to bring Veracruz cuisine to Charlottesville that reminds us of home. The flavors from our grandmothers’ and mothers’ kitchens.”
