Emma Cantu


October's Kinfolk Cookbook Workshop is centered around tradition. Passed down treasured recipes from one generation to the next... so it seems especially appropriate to present Emma Cantu as our featured impassioned cook!

A woman whose passion for cooking is poured into every bite. A staple at the Santa Barbara's Farmers Market for many years, you can always catch her there feeding the vendors her latest artful recipes. From hot and savory delectables to her famous cakes made from scratch! But whenever asked to cook on a grand scale, Emma earnestly says "I only cook for friends who come into my heart".

So it is with that in mind I feel especially honored to share our beloved Emma's feast with recipes she collected over thirty years as a gourmet cook. You're in for a meal you won't forget with flavors both unique and comforting... So hope you can join us!
