There are two main places for Cooking Classes in Santa Fe: The Santa Fe School of Cooking and the Las Cosas Kitchen Shoppe & Cooking School. The Santa Fe School of Cooking has been teaching home cooks new skills and introducing them to the cuisine of the Southwest for more than three decades. It’s located near the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in downtown Santa Fe, just a 15-minute walk from our Inn.
The Las Cosas Kitchen Shoppe & Cooking School is a little farther from our Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast but is a quick 6-minute drive away (or 30 minutes on foot). Either way you go, you’ll have a fantastic time with any of their cooking classes in Santa Fe!
“Warm, spicy, and enticing” are just a few of the descriptors the Santa Fe School of Cooking uses to describe their cooking classes in Santa Fe. They offer a variety of cooking classes to choose from, but in whichever you choose, you can expect to meld native ingredients and traditional methodologies together to create a contemporary fusion of flavors from traditional to modern southwestern cuisine.
Cooking classes at the Santa Fe School of Cooking are offered several times a week and include a broad range of topics, including traditional New Mexican, Native American, Mexican, Spanish, vegetarian, and contemporary Southwestern cuisine. They also incorporate different modalities in their cooking school, including more hands-on classes and chef demonstrations. Most of their cooking classes in Santa Fe last for around three hours and include a full meal. You can find their complete list of scheduled cooking classes in Santa Fe on their website.
The Santa Fe School of Cooking also offers immersive restaurant walking tours throughout Santa Fe, a great way to get a lay of the (foodie) land! They’ve been offering these guided tasting tours for more than 20 years, and with their connections to the culinary world of Santa Fe, you can expect some truly delicious bites on your tour. No matter where you stop on the tour, you can expect a private tasting with a mix of classic and traditional dishes while also getting a taste of Santa Fe’s innovative culinary scene.
At Los Cosas Kitchen Shoppe & Cooking School, you’ll cook alongside Chef John Vollertsen (Chef Johnny V!), who has a deep love and appreciation for the unique place food holds in the cultural confluence of Santa Fe. These cooking classes in Santa Fe do a remarkable job of infusing the flavors of New Mexico with classic American and European techniques. These cooking classes are just as diverse as those at the Santa Fe School of Cooking and include a broad range of cuisines and styles, ranging from New Mexican favorites to Thai cooking.
A fun aspect of these cooking classes in Santa Fe is the guest chef experiences, which feature master chefs from around New Mexico – including some of Santa Fe’s most famous!
