More About Cara Greenstein

As foodies ourselves, we love following Cara Greenstein’s culinary adventures. But what inspired her to do what she does today? In her own words, she fell in love with cooking at the age of 12, when she saved up babysitting earnings and bat mitzvah gift certificates and splurged on a pastel yellow Kitchen Aid Mixer. From that moment on, she was hooked.

The passion for cooking continued (as did her sweet tooth), as she expanded her palate and her knowledge for culinary arts. This eventually culminated in her book “Caramelized,” which has since become an award-winning brand where she shares her thoughts on both the local food industry in Memphis and in the destinations her travels take her to.
