Our Sandalwood is on the Pharmacy Food Grade - Usable for cooking  List.
There are several grades of the bark from outer , middle, inner, and  heart.
Otherwise I wouldn't suggest it.

True  Sandalwood, Santalum albumm -- sometimes called White Sandalwood 
--  although it is more of a very pale tannish yellow color -- is not  
considered safe to eat. This is the sandalwood with the lovely  

What i usually see called for in SCA period recipes is  Red Sandalwood 
/ Red Sanders / Red Saunders, Pterocarpus santalinus. This  had little 
flavor but adds an interesting warm red color to  dishes.

I don't want people to injure themselves or their diners using  true 
Sandalwood in their food.
