Traditional pueblo cuisine in Española, NM

In the Santa Clara Pueblo, just a mile and a half south of Española, is Norma Naranjo’s kitchen, well known as The Feasting Place. Norma is keeping traditional pueblo cuisine alive here—and sharing it with curious cooks and diners.

In traditional fashion, the Naranjo family raises their own crops, farming as their ancestors did, without chemical additives or pesticides. Their food is nearly 100% homegrown, and they use a typical adobe horno oven for baking bread and empanadas and roasting chile in the ashes to make rellenos.

You can learn these 500-year-old cooking traditions and share a meal around Norma’s kitchen table. We highly recommend it.
