For over 33 years we have been welcoming folks through our doors for Corporate Events, Private Parties including Birthdays, Bachelorette Parties and Bridal Showers, Girl’s Getaways and Wine Pairing Dinners.

The casual yet elegant and vibrant settng at the Santa Fe School of Cooking makes an enjoyable experience, that is entertaining, laid back, and fun for visitors and locals! The event spaces are recently updated, and fully equipped with open-style demonstration kitchens, preparation space, and separate dining areas plus an added outdoor patio for bigger functions of more than 100 guests! We offer beer and wine and are now able to offer cocktails featuring New Mexican made spirits. Every event is uniquely designed for the individual client.

Private Cooking Classes

We are always busy offering our signature cooking classes for private groups of friends, colleagues and families.

Cheryl Alters Jamison—author of four-time James Beard Award-winning cookbook

You can come in, and one of our chefs will either guide you along through the recipes that you have chosen, while your group cooks together or if you prefer a demonstration style class where the chef shares their vast knowledge of cooking ingredients and techniques all while putting on a ‘show’ for your group. No matter what you decide it will end in a delicious meal.
We also offer a very special and unique experience with Four-time James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Cheryl Alters Jamison who is available for cooking classes or culinary workshops at the cooking school or in her home. Cheryl lives and works in a distinctive hacienda, a renovated 100-year-old dairy barn in the village of Tesuque, just north of Santa Fe. She tends a small flock of chickens, with outsize personalities that lay all colors of eggs. She’s the author of more than 20 books, including Tasting New Mexico, The Rancho de Chimayò Cookbook, American Home Cooking, Born to Grill, and the landmark book on American barbecue, Smoke & Spice. Cheryl’s an expert on wood-fired cooking, all things Southwestern, and much, much more. Wherever an event with Cheryl takes place, clients can count on it being a celebration. Her website and social media name, excitedaboutfood, says it all.
