Chef Glen Hogh found his passion at an early age. His parents exposed him to great restaurants thus allowing him to develop a mature palate at a young age, and he continued his love within the vibrancy of New Orleans, the people, and their passion for food and living. In 1998 he started working at Vega Tapas Café, where he found a perfect marriage between Louisiana’s indigenous foods and Mediterranean cuisine. “The spices, the foods, the cultures, and the shared joy of living of both seem as a soul match.” Chef Hogh purchased the restaurant from namesake & founding Chef Alison Vega in 2003, determined to carry on the tradition that she began. Drawn to history, he further enhances his knowledge and appreciation of Spanish culture, food and ingredients, by annual trips to Spain. When not cooking he enjoys traveling, his four-legged ‘daughter’, an albino rescue Weimaraner named Powder, and is pursuing aviation training.
