“Sumptuous learning experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The Santa Fe School of Cooking provides excellent instruction along with a sumptuous meal from the demonstration. It is a wonderful experience for all from practiced chefs to cooking spectators. The chef demonstrators welcome every question and are not "haughty" in their demeanor. Their new facility is spacious and the staff is beyond friendly and helpful. I will attend every chance I get!

“Great Fun & Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My husband and I took a class at the Santa Fe School of Cooking while on vacation in Santa Fe. My husband was reluctant until the class on Tamales I began. We had so much fun that that my husbands plans for us to take another class next time we are in Santa Fe which is every year. The chefs were knowledgeable, patient, kind and fun. We cannot wait to make Tamales for our friends. We give the school five stars!

“Best Way to Get a Real Taste of Santa Fe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We took two sessions; a demonstration class on Mexican Cuisine and a hands-on class on Salsas. We particularly enjoyed the demonstration class taught by Michelle Roetzer (she is awesome-ask for her!). Of course these classes will not make you an expert chef, but they will help you develop a greater appreciation and understanding of Santa Fe style cuisine. It was worth it alone for what we learned about chiles.

We had a great time and learned a lot. We will definitely attend more classes during our next visit to Santa Fe.

“A lucky throw of the dice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

I was just a happenstance attendee. I was roaming the Internet from western Massachusetts looking for some thing interesting to plan a road trip around and happened on this website. I signed up for 5 classes in May of 2013. It really inspired me to renew my energy in cooking and bring back what I learned to my home territory. I'm totally jazzed about bringing southwestern flare to my New England friends. I enjoyed every class ( 4 so far, one more before I leave Santa Fe) and will absolutely encourage others to attend.

“Great foodie experience in Santa Fe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I googled cooking classes in Santa Fe before our trip and found the Santa Fe School of Cooking - was SO glad that I did. My husband took the Tamale I class and I took the Restaurant II tour. Both were excellent; these folks know what they're doing! The restaurant tour was pretty close to perfect, just the right amount of food and alcohol at each of the four restaurants. I was concerned about about consuming too much booze at the high altitude but it was not an issue; plenty of water was provided and quality, not quantity, was the focus. The chef/mixologist at each venue was personable and informative. It was obvious that each one had lots of respect for the School. FIY: our tour involved LOTS of walking but it was well worth the effort.
