Chef Emma's Venezuelan Cuisine
Description: Emma and her husband Enrique moved to Utah in 2003 from Tachira, Venezuela. Emma started her culinary business because she “wanted to set an example for her family that it is never too late to go after your dreams.” She feels that Spice gave her the opportunity to dream big.
La Pizca Andina is named after a traditional Venezuelan egg soup made in Emma’s hometown, paying tribute to her roots.
Emma’s dream is to open a restaurant in Salt Lake City where the community can try her handmade dishes and travel to Venezuela through La Pizca Andina’s hearty flavors. Her specialties include arepas, buñuelos, and tres leches.
She participates in multiple seasonal markets and hopes to expand her catering business.
