Get Away To The Cantina!

Get ready for a taste of Latin adventure from one of California’s great agriculture legacies - Yolo County. Here at the Cantina, we seek to build upon the world’s great, regional Latin recipes one ingredient and one method at a time by blending old world traditions with new world flavors. We strive to source our ingredients from local farms and producers and without exception create our culinary offerings from scratch everday. From our famed “Taco Tuesday” Chef Tacos to our leading-edge daily specials that marry California cuisine with all things Latin, our focus is always to provide you with an experience that is both memorable and exciting.

So relax and enjoy a little vacation with us - get away to the Cantina!

You are Maria’s Cantina’s Sous Chef.  Describe your approach to work.

My role at Maria's Cantina revolves around creativity and structure.   I believe that discipline in a restaurant is a prerequisite for the art that happens inside it.   I have always been known for my thoroughness and my short fuse.  However, for every shout I let out, there are twice as many hugs and "I love you's". 

How long have you been a part of Maria’s Cantina family and what are some of your most memorable
moments in the restaurant and out?

November will mark two years with my Maria's family.   The most amazing memory I have with this bunch is our day trip to Great America.  It was an employee appreciation day that meant we all loaded up in vans and spent the day screaming and laughing together.  What a perfect day with the crew.

I have very distinct food memories. I remember the first time I had blue cheese at age 7, blown away! Fudge, same thing. I believe I was about 5 in my kindergarten class. Food has always been a huge part of my life even in high school.
