I was skeptical when my company had a cooking school scheduled for my group as a "teambuilding excercise", but the experience ended up exceeding all of my expectations. We were split into groups and each group prepared a batch of appetizers. They had about 4 chefs there, so each group was given clear instructions and assistance. Our group made Apricot... More

Four of us ranging from age 12 to 72 took the tamale-making class and loved it. We learned about the history or origin of tamales, everyone helped make one of three kinds, then we feasted on the results - delicious. The tamales were the best New Mexican food we had on our trip. The classroom was well-equipped and comfortable. The... More

I took the southwestern cooking boot camp which was amazing. I cook a lot, yet still learned a lot, and it was really fun to learn from local chefs, as well as school staff. I ate way too much, but every mouthful was fabulous.

A big part of the Santa Fe experience is the food. To take that a step beyond sampling the many great restaurants in Santa Fe, I attended a demonstration of Traditional Mexican cooking at the Santa Fe Cooking School. A chef talked through his preparation of a full meal, as we watched his workspace in mirrors and video. He provided... More

This tamale class was great fun and we ended up with sharing great food with some very nice people. The facility is very nice. There is an appropriate amount of room and variety of tools available for such a class. The workspace was pretty well organized. I saw a lot of looks how monks my fellow students when we all...

Took a hands on Burrito class. Very nice facility, professional teachers, delicious food. We made 3 types of Burritos, I got to make a green chilli sauce, but was also able to observe other foods being made. The class is 3 hours, includes the last 1/2 hour to eat. They provide coffee or ice tea and have wine for purchase.... More

You can watch preparation of traditional New Mexico dishes, participate in the preparation (of assorted salsas), and enjoy a tasty meal you watched being prepped. A great experience of individuals, families (with older children), or groups.

Let me start by saying I have done three other events at Santa Fe School of Cooking, at least one with Chef Michelle, and enjoyed them very much. However, this time we were at the new school and signed up for a hands-on taco workshop. There were probably 20 people in the class. We were preparing about 8 different dishes.... More

When in Santa Fe, don't miss a visit to the Santa Fe School of Cooking. Our tour group was scheduled to have lunch there, and I admit I was a bit tepid about this event on our agenda. My was I wrong! The food and the chef, Lois Ellen Frank, were outstanding, and it was such a fun experience. Chef... More

My sister and I went to Santa Fe for a little getaway and while we enjoyed the museums, churches, shopping, art galleries and restaurants, we were thrilled with our cooking class with Chef Michelle Roetzer and Noe Cano. Since I live in Philadelphia, southwestern food is something I don't see in my neck of the woods. Michelle gave us so... More
