DiverseCity: Discovering Houston Through Its Rich Food Scene

A recent Houston transplant talks about discovering Houston’s diversity through the city’s food.


Alfredo Vetencourt - DiverseCity - HPMAlfredo Vetencourt grew up in Caracas, Venezuela and moved to Houston two years ago. He talks about how Houston’s diverse food scene helped him break out of his comfort zone, about relying on the vibrant community of Venezuelans here, and about what keeps him in the Bayou City.

This segment is part of DiverseCity, a year-long initiative looking at what Houston’s diversity really means for the city. We’ll be examining how it connects or divides us and how it shapes the nation’s fourth-largest city.
