A wonderful way to spend a morning in Sanra Fe

We absolutely loved the time spent at the cooking school. The food was amazing, our chef was knowledgeable and entertaining. We can't wait to use the recipes when we get home.

We attended the Southwest Cooking class and really enjoyed ourselves. During the class we were offered beverages. Much of the cooking had been done prior to class but we saw all the major steps to preparing the menu. At the end of the class we had the entire meal which was delicious. The store was also nice.

We enjoyed the demonstration events both the menu from Georgia O'Keefe's kitchen and the Santa Fe cuisine. Interesting event, learned a lot and the lunch was very good.

The chefs were so fun to learn from and very knowledgeable. Our group consisted of 16 teenagers and the staff worked great with them. They took time to explain the history of this region's food items. The dishes, even though very spicy, were very delicious! I would highly recommend taking a class here.

When we moved to Santa Fe, my wife and I decided a good way to learn about our new hometown was to take cooking classes. We have taken several at the Santa Fe School of Cooking, and on every occasion, whether a demonstration or a hands-on class, we have thoroughly enjoyed the chefs, the classroom ambience, our classmates, and especially...

This place was awesome, the staff work very well together and taught us how to make apricot empanditas, vegetable quesadillas, archiote chicken, and some other great dishes. We all had lots of fun and everything turned out delightful due to the great instructions we received from the instructors. What a delight.. I come from a family of chefs and was... More

I was a little skeptical about this but it was amazing. We started at the school and walked to four additional world class restaurants. We met the chefs and had small plates and drinks (mostly wine) at each stop. Restaurant Martin allowed us into the kitchen and explained their philosophy for sustainable cooking. The others were equally delicious. Mark, the... More

Being form NM and not knowing how to make our food has always been an embarrassment to me. So it has been something that I wanted to learn how to do. I went with my mother to the Green Chile hands on workshop and it was an amazing experience. After three hours in the class I now feel like I... More

We took the introduction to Traditional Southwestern Cooking class and really enjoyed it. The instructor was very knowledgeable, but she was a bit patronizing to anyone who asked questions. The facility was very modern and comfortable with cameras projecting the preparations, making it easy to watch. At the end of class we had lunch featuring the dishes we had learned.

We took a demonstration class where the chefs cook and explain the process and ingredients and we eat!!! Chef Frank's knowledge of the ingredients and their cultural significance was really fascinating. I took the class with my teenaged daughter and even she stayed engaged and interested throughout the 3 hour class! The food was a bit spicy for her but... More

We are so glad that you and your daughter enjoyed your New Mexican class with Lois Ellen Frank so much. To get the chile sauces a little less spicy you can decrease the amount of chile called for in the recipe and add a dollop of sour cream on top. The dairy cuts the heat of the chile. We hope...
