Making Magic With Vianney

New food editor wants to know the stories behind the recipes in Co-op Country

Meet Vianney Rodriguez, the Corpus Christi foodie who will be inviting readers into her kitchen every month as TCP’s new food editor. You first met Vianney in December 2020, when she wrote in delicious detail about pan dulce.

She fell in love with cooking as a child in Aransas Pass. “Growing up watching my abuelita and mami cook together in perfect sync … They were creating magic. I wanted to be a part of this world and have been cooking ever since.”

Vianney—“simply say the letters V-N-A”—started her blog, Sweet Life, in 2009, joining the online conversations that she saw as “mini love letters to food.” Her passion kept growing. “I have authored two cookbooks—Latin Twist, a cocktail book featuring cocktails from Latin countries, and The Tex-Mex Slow Cooker.

Today she works out of her studio kitchen, Cocina Gris—gray kitchen—where she can’t wait to dive into more reader recipes from Co-op Country.
