Found the history of NM food interesting which led to the making of the mole. Enjoyed the seating arrangement and the continuously full coffee cup. The food portions were generous. Too bad our dessert didn't come together in time.......even chefs have disasters! Would take another course.

Took the traditional New Mexican cuisine 2 class. We got to observe two chefs prepare delicious food with instructions and then eat it! So glad we did this class! I would love to do others and attend schools like this whenever traveling somewhere new! Great idea for anyone interested in cooking or eating!!!

What a great way to experience 5 restaurants in 3 hours. We paid for a 3 hour tour starting at the Santa Fe School of Cooking, led by their Chef. Each restaurant served one or more items. Beware the delicious wine at every stop, it catches up with you in all that crisp mountain air! A great way to spend... More

My friends and I recently traveled to Santa Fe and high on our list was to take a cooking class at the Santa Fe School of Cooking. We chose a class based on a cookbook written by Georgia O'Keefe's chef, and all of the recipes reflected very fresh ingredients and fairly simple preparation. Ours was a demonstration class, so we...

We took two classes and the food tour. Our experience if the classes was mixed. The educational part was interesting (though duplicative). Our enjoyment of the cooking class was dependent in the people in our group of four. ( we were two). I wish the instructor had more control over the difficult people who didn't play well in the sandbox.

Attended the New Mexico Traditional class. It was very interesting. Michelle Roetzer is a fantastic instructor-lots of history as well as good techniques. The food was delicious. Went home and made the red chile sauce! Great activity while visiting Santa Fe.

This was a memorable evening with Chef Michelle. We learned about the origin of the ingredients and the meal and how to prepare it. We could participate as much or as little as we liked knowing we would still get to eat something tasty. This is great for team building or with friends and family.

We have participated in much better food tours that cost half the price (ex: South Beach) or were private tours (ex: Puerto Rico Old Town). There were four restaurants on the tour and two restaurants did a great job hosting. The other two stops were bars, with one of them being a replacement for a restaurant which led to a... More

I went on the restaurant walking tour. It started with a refreshing shrimp cocktail at the cooking school. We visited 4 different spots and all were prepared for us and provided a nice sample. A must- do for any foodie.

We visited 4 restaurants where we met the chefs and/or owners for an inside look at the kitchens, and at each restaurant we were served a very wonderful small plate with a glass of wine. Only a couple of the chefs offered cooking tips that I would use at home-- I had hoped for more of that type of thing.... More
