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

We participated in the 3-hour Southwest Tapas class from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on a Wednesday morning. The chef was delightful and very informative. Cameras were set up at strategic locations so that we had no trouble watching what was being prepared. The room was bright and well-appointed, and the tables at which we were seated were very comfortable.... More

On a recent trip to Santa Fe, my wife and I took a class on Southwestern Barbeque at the Santa Fe School of Cooking. Although we've also taken some of the School's "hands on" classes in the past, this one was demonstration only. Nevertheless, it was a wonderful experience that lasted a little over three hours and culminated in a... More

I took a cooking class here with my son-in-law and granddaughter and all three of us enjoyed the class. It was a class in southwest cooking and was conducted by a French chef! The material was fascinating and the recipes were great. I learned a lot and afterwards we got to eat the things that were prepared. Very enjoyable!

I went with a girlfriend during a "girls" weekend. We were joined with others to make a group of about 15 for the class. I'm not sure if that's the normal class size, but it worked well. I wouldn't have wanted any more in there - it was pretty crowded as it was. We took the class that taught about... More
