- And, Wendy Garcia grew up in Alamos, Sonora, cooking her family’s traditional meat-based Mexican recipes. After moving to Tucson when she was 17, Garcia decided to start her own business selling vegan tamales at farmers' markets. We’ll hear how that grew into Tumerico, a nationally recognized restaurant in the heart of Tucson.
