This was one of the highlights of our trip! The cooking school has a great store with wonderful herbs and spices, cooking ware, and helpful people. Would suggest taking a class then browsing the store. Everything they used in the class, you could purchase in the store. This particular class was a DEMO class (vs a participation class where you...

We stumbled across the store as we were walking back to our hotel from a restaurant. A nice selection of southwestern cooking implements, cookbooks and ingredients. The selection was large, with many unique local specialty items. The prices seemed very reasonable.

Pleased to tour this facility in January 2015; we attended a luncheon which served superb southwest food. Also they had in the store all of the particular flavors which only New Mexico grows; which you will find in few places. The spices - red, green chile; posole, blue corn flour, recipe books - everything was just what you need to... More

This was the second class that I've taken at the school. Both experiences were first-rate. Our teacher Alan taught us how to make green and red chile sauces, enchiladas, pinto beans, and pecan bread pudding. He gave us lots of tips about technique and ingredients. We sat at tables while we watched Alan and his associate Noe prepare the dishes.... More

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
