Spent a very amusing and informative morning attending this demonstration class. First we were enticed by the delicious aromas while Chef Michelle Chavez cooked for us and then we got to eat the dishes, which were every bit as delicious as the scents advertised. The chef was instructive but not didactic, lots of fun! I loved being introduced to the... More

I took three classes at the Santa Fe School of Cooking: Red Chile, Chile Rellenos and a demonstration course on the food of Georgia O'Keeffe. The professors/chefs were knowledgeable, full of tips, tricks, and humor. I left every class with a smile on my face and a full stomach.

We had a great experience at the Santa Fe Cooking School. We did the Level One Traditional New Mexican course. Our chefs were great! Informative, humorous and personable. The food was fantastic and we learned lots of good tips for home cooking.

I love this place. Someday I will have the time to take a cooking class here. They have the most unique & wonderful ingredients to use in cooking Santa Fe style.

What a great way to get a taste of Santa Fe! We started at the school where we had amazing duck tamales and a slaw, and then the chef took our very interesting and fun group of people to four local restaurants, where we met the chefs and had delicious food and wines. This experience has made me think that... More

I went there a long time ago but the review drop down doesn't go back that far. I went to this school before most people had heard of it outside of Santa Fe . Primarily because I could not find this type of food or cooking anywhere at home so decided the bast way to get New Mexico / Mexico/... More

I attended one of the sessions at the Santa Fe School of Cooking with my daughter and her mother-in-law. You enter the school through a small shop that has different cooking supplies to include an extensive collection of La Chambra clay cooking pots. I was intrigued by the smooth black clay pots. Once everyone arrived we were taken into a... More

My group of seven took the shop walk in late March. We went to four shops, a tea shop, a spice shop, a cheese shop, and an olive oil/vinegar shop. The cost per person was $45. plus tax. Shop one was the tea shop. There was no tea for the group to try and the shop owner was late arriving.... More

Six of us took the three hour restaurant walk and it far surpassed our expectations. But you do need to be able to walk a few miles. First they gave us a taste of quiche and wine at the school. Then we walked to four other places around town, sampling food and adult beverages at each. The chef spoke to... More
