Our Fall Open Kitchen

On Saturday November 8th, Cantu’s Culinary Creations invites you to our open house at 2163 S Richards St (55W) from 6 pm to 9 pm. For a suggested gift of $15 to $25 you will get access to a buffet of hors d’oeuvres, dinner and desserts. There will also be music and door prizes.

“It’s a really good chance for people to meet and greet,” says Chef Daniel Cantu, “for people to come, learn more and have a nice, awesome dinner.”

The open house is held at the kitchen where everything happens. That gives guests an opportunity to see where the culinary magic takes place. Cantu’s Culinary Creations uses the open house as an opportunity to show off the skills that Cantu brings to his home delivery and catering services.

“It’s nice and casual,’ says Cantu.

Cantu’s Culinary Creations uses local produce and food from locally sourced companies. One of the driving ideas behind the company is that people should eat exciting food in a way that is healthy for them and the environment.

Celebrating Our 5 Year Anniversary

chef daniel 5 yr anniversaryCantu’s Culinary Creations is celebrating five years in business. On April 1, 2009, Chef Daniel Cantu obtained his business license starting a journey that has seen him successfully implement his ideas for a personal chef home delivery service and his opportunities for catering expand.

“Food is the thing that bonds people together,” says Cantu.

One of Cantu’s favorite locations to create food is at the Desert Rocks Festival. Cooking at the festival allows him to reconnect with friends, and it’s a fun challenge to make great food for people in the desert.

Street fairs and farmers markets give Cantu the opportunity to meet new people while cooking outside. The farmers markets are special because Cantu gets to share his food with the people who help him create it – the farmers.

“I love being outside, and cooking outside,” says Cantu.

Catering weddings provides allows Cantu to participate in a “couple’s really special day.” Those weddings that are in the canyons or far from civilization makes the food even better.

“It’s a thing where our natural environment plays a part,’ says Cantu. Food keeps people together.

Putting people in any situation together with healthy food has its own rewards. Cantu’s Culinary Creations is looking forward to another five years and more. Thank you for making our community brighter and more successful.

Come enjoy our food and our community at our open house on Saturday, April 26, 2014, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 2163 S Richards St (55W). A suggested $15 to $20 tip will include food, music and door prizes.

Wasatch Community Gardens enjoying Cantu's Catering Services

wasatch community gardens logoWasatch Community Gardens has worked with Cantu Culinary Creations to bring wholesome food to a board and staff retreat.

According to Executive Director Ashley Patterson, Chef Daniel Cantu offers interesting, different and creative vegetarian options that are not your standard fare.

“The food was absolutely delicious,” says Patterson.

Chef Cantu’s dedication to healthy food was only one of the reasons Patterson gave for working with Cantu’s Culinary Creations.

“He sources produce and food locally,” says Patterson. “That’s kind of hard to find in a caterer.”

In addition to using cloth napkins, real silverware and real plates to reduce waste, Chef Cantu brings a little extra to every job he does.

“He’s fun to work with,” says Patterson.

Working with Wasatch Community Gardens is great for Chef Cantu. As someone who believes that everyone should know where the food on the table comes from, Chef Cantu looks at growing your own food as one way to eat healthier.

Wasatch Community Gardens offers those who may not be able to afford land and opportunity to have a garden, grow their own food and participate in a community.

Wasatch Community Gardens will be participating in the Love Utah, Give Utah fundraising campaign on March 20 with an open house at Rico’s warehouse.

Serving Healthy Eats at Unite Fitness Retreat

unite fitness retreatCantu’s Culinary Creations has teamed up with Unite Fitness Retreat to help teach nutrition and feed guests of Unite’s programs in Salt Lake City.

Unite was founded in 2012 and is a wellness retreat that focuses on education and lifestyle changes that help its guests be healthier. Unite uses Salt Lake City’s geographical proximity to great outdoor recreation, like hiking, kayaking and snowshowing, to help its clients get in shape.

“[We] promote being active without necessarily having to run on a treadmill,” says CEO Drew Paulos. Unite offers wellness retreats, fitness retreats and extreme weight loss retreats that are personally designed. The company takes on fewer clients, so there is more one-on-one training.

Paulos says that nutrition is about 80 percent of the equation when it comes to weight loss with fitness being the other 20 percent.

Unite brings its guests from all over the world to downtown Salt Lake City. Programs run from one to 18 weeks depending on what the guest needs.

“We have a very international focus,” says Paulos. “I would really like to see more local people [in the program].”

Unite offers four to 12 weeks of follow-up after the program has finished to help create a fitness routine at home that is comfortable for the guest.

Cantu’s Culinary Creations is proud to bring healthy food to the guests of a local program inspiring lifestyle changes that make people healthier.

Cantus Culinary Creations now has Gift Certificates

gift certificateThere are a couple of things that everyone can use - time and food.  Your purchase of a gift certificate to enjoy Cantu’s Culinary Creations gives the people in your life the opportunity to get a little more of both.

You know how hard it can be to make dinner for a busy family on the go; yet you also know that it is important for people to sit and eat together.  After a long day of work or school having something easy and healthy to make already in the fridge makes dinner time less stress and more about getting the family together.  

Everyone has to eat.  Unfortunately eating on the go isn’t always healthy.  But when you get a personal chef to deliver food to your door, eating healthy is always a choice.

Food brings people together.  When you do not have to prepare it yourself, you find you can enjoy that time all the more.

If you or a friend could benefit from the food adventure that Cantu’s offers, we want to help you out. From now through Valentines Day if you buy a $100 gift certificate for a new client, Cantu’s will waive the set up fee. If you buy $100 gift certificate for someone who already enjoys Cantu’s delivery service, they will get a total credit of $135.

Gift certificates can be purchased with either cash, check, credit card or paypal. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 801-359-6035 and we will take care of the rest and get awesome food to your table. 

Oranges and the Holiday Season

Holiday OrangeThe Catholic Church and many European countries mark Dec. 6 as St. Nicholas’ Day. Known as Santa Claus to Americans, St. Nicholas delivers gifts on Dec. 6 while in Germanic countries the Krampus doles out the punishment for those who have been bad.

The reason why you might want to know about St. Nicholas is because of a specific story that relates to getting an orange in your stocking.

During the 3rd and 4th centuries, women needed a dowry to be married. One father in Patara had three daughters when he lost all of his earthly wealth. The daughters would have to be given to prostitution if they were going to survive.

St. Nicholas heard about the poor man’s plight, and here is where accounts vary. Some say that he delivered a bag of gold through the window. The bag landed in a stocking near the fire that melted the gold into a sphere. That would make the dowry for the oldest daughter. Nicholas would return at intervals and do the same thing for the other two sisters.

Another version says that Nicholas delivered three bags of gold at the same time through the chimney. The bags landed in three different stockings, and the gold melted into a sphere. Either way, the spheres are represented as gold, as children’s heads or as fruit.

Oranges weren’t always as readily available everywhere as they are today. In fact, while they would get to Europe in the wintertime, there was no good way to keep them fresh so they had to be eaten. During the dead of winter, a bright orange would be a welcomed reminder of the sun.

That is why some families have the traditional Christmas orange.

The orange is full of citric acid, which is an anti-oxidant and mood elevator. Just 1 cup of a raw orange will provide 160 percent of the RDA Vitamin C.

It doesn’t matter which holiday you celebrate this season, if any. What does matter is that you know there are people who appreciate you for who you are. Those of us at Cantu’s Culinary Creations want to thank you for being a part of our lives.

Prepared with Love

Chef Daniel Cantu

"Food is my passion. Whether I am enjoying a simple but exquisite meal with a couple of friends, savoring some bread and cheese after a hike or just eating a fresh picked cherry tomato and basil leaf. Food never fails to put a smile on my face. It is my goal to provide people with a shared happiness through food. "
