We attended a three hour cooking class demonstration, and enjoyed the food afterwards. The chef was smart, funny, and provided a lot of info, including great tips. The food was absolutely amazing, especially the wild mushroom soup. Wine too!!! Afterwards, you can go into the store and find what you need (in terms of spices and supplies) to make the meals. It gave me a real feel for the regional food. It's a great thing to do with cold weather, or when you are tired of shopping! I highly recommend reservations in advance.

We went on Good Friday. There were only 6 of us. The chef at the school, Lois, was excellent. She cooked us up some enchiladas. One with goat cheese and a tomatillos sauce. One with potatoes and chorizo. Both great. Then we walked off to our first of 4 more eateries. First stop was the Palace. We met the chefs. We had a great crab cake with an onion puff. Tasty. Loved hearing the history of the place as well. Next off to Gruet. Sampled 5 different wines and sparkling champagne. This was accompanied by cheese and crackers. The best was the finale. A Doux Gruet that tasted of grapefruit. Wow! Off we went to the restaurant in the Anastazi Hotel. The chef was delightful, but we did not like the pork bellies. Wish it could have been anything else. The last place was an Italian restaurant. The chef and manager were so much fun. Wine was great. Can’t recall the name. We tried the pumpkin raviolis and Gorgonzola raviolis and mushroom raviolis. We stayed afterwards to have tiramisu. All were delicious.
Great fun had by all.

We took this class as a couple and loved it. Hands on. The recipes were great and I learned so much. They also have everything in their store to buy ingredients or kitchen tools if you don’t have it at home. But they do not try to sell you anything unless you ask if they have it. The chefs were Allen and Noe. I would definitely take another class with them. This is great for couples or groups or families or girls trip etc. Very nice facility. Only 16 in the workshop.

This is my 5th -bonus- class at Santa Fe School of Cooking in 3 years. These were all demonstration classes not hands on.
Chef Allen makes it fun and interesting. Always has new material and makes the 3 hour class go by so fast. He has been a chef all over the world, so don’t think you are getting a local yocal.
The ladies that work in the store provide excellent customer service, especially Susan, who also serves during the class.
Since I don’t cook much this class serves as entertainment and a good meal!
