Vicky Carballo & Alec Fernandez
Vicky Carballo was raised in a Cuban kitchen in Miami. She remembers her “Abuelita Tete” patiently rolling ham croquetas on the kitchen table, making sure each one was perfectly formed and uniform. She recalls every wrinkle in her grandmother’s hands and tries to channel that same love and attention to detail with everything she shares with her family and clients. From her beginnings in culinary school, years of catering and culinary travels, Vicky is constantly tasting and savoring, visiting eateries & farmers markets on the hunt for new experiences that will inspire. To Vicky, food is life, and she tries to celebrate it at every chance she gets.
Vicky partnered with her nephew, Alec Fernandez to create Dos Croquetas, Miami’s first Croquets Bar that reinvents and elevates the traditional Cuban croqueta to that of artisanal craft. Vicky focuses on menu and R&D while Alec focuses on marketing and business development. Dos Croquetas use only the freshest, quality ingredients to create layers of flavor for an incredibly unique experience. Dos Croquetas pride themselves on treating each customer as family. And just like Vicky’s grandmother enjoyed feeding her family, Dos Croquetas is always searching for ways to indulge and amaze their loyal fan base.
