Home : Private Events
Our private classes are a great way to have some fun in the kitchen with a group of friends or work associates. Each class is customized to your group's specific needs. Put on aprons and cook alongside our chefs with your group, then following the class, sit down and enjoy the meal you made with your group.
Groups we have hosted in the past are:
- Corporate Meetings
- Family Reunions
- Birthday Parties
- Client Appreciation
- Business Team Building
- Or just a fun group of friends getaway!

Cooking in the Vineyard!
We can also offer private classes at the beautiful Estrella del Norte Vineyard, located 20 minutes north of Santa Fe in Nambe. We are able to accommodate groups from 10 on up to 60 people and offer hands-on or demonstration style classes in this setting. The class is held outside in the middle of the vineyard where everything will be prepared in an outdoor oven or on the wood fired grill. After the preparation of the meal, let one of our local New Mexican winemakers discuss the history of grape growing in New Mexico and try some of New Mexico's best wines! Enjoy the meal at the end of the class amid the fruit trees and grape vines. We really highlight fresh, local and seasonal foods when cooking in the vineyard. A sample meal cooked in the vineyard...
- Wild greens salad with Greek goddess dressing
- Cumin marinated potatoes
- Masa encrusted pork chops with green chile and golden raisin chutney
- Blue corn biscuits with apple and pecan compote
