I have been to 2 of SF School of Cooking's group demonstration classes (Contemporary Southwest II and VI)and I have enjoyed both of them so much that I have another booked for 8/8(Mole and More). So far I've had the same chef/instructor, Allen Smith, both times. He is easy to understand and not only shows you how to make the... More

We didn't take a class, but we did take a restaurant tour led by the School of Cooking. We started at the school with a sample of Chardonnay and a bowl of gazpacho - delicious! Then we moved to Terra Cotta, Dinner for Two, Luminaria, and Il Piatto. Well worth the walking!

I've wanted to try one of the classes for a while but the timing never worked out. This year my wife gave me the red chili cooking class for Father's Day. It was a great present. The staff was knowledgable and helpful. I left feeling like I had learned something I can take with me to Milwaukee and I had... More

We took the Salsas II cooking class. The class was entirely hands on. The Chef Noe gave us an introduction to chiles, gave us a few pointers, and then let us go with the recipes. The class was small, so we could ask for help and then he would give us help - showing us how to peel a mango,... More

Learned a lot about New Mexican cooking. I wish I could have done more hands on work rather than just watching. Great people. For being one day after having a major water leak, you would have never known. They had already relocated the shop.

My friend and I attended a class and LOVED it. Chef Michelle was informative, funny and a fabulous cook! She explained everything so well and gave us great hints on cooking in general. It was not intimidating and the meal that they prepared was awesome. The classroom is beautiful and the shop and everyone that works that were great. It... More

I attended the Santa Fe School of Cooking a couple of years ago and had a great day. We booked the Restaurant Walk this time and was eager to go. Unfortunately I became ill, and they did credit us. Many many thanks!!!
