The Santa Fe School of Cooking is a regional, recreational cooking school specializing in foods of the Southwest since 1984. Their talented chefs have written cookbooks, won prestigious competitions and appeared in the pages of glossy magazines. They share one important attribute—they know how to have fun in the kitchen! The school offers both hands-on classes and demonstration style classes as well as hosting Restaurant Walking Tours, which were featured by Fodor's as one of the country's top 10 walking tours! It is also the perfect space to host private functions such as corporate dinners, family reunions and tour groups. The Santa Fe School of Cooking is in a brand new facility located on the corner of Guadalupe Street and Johnson St. The downtown Santa Fe location, opened in September 2012, has seating for up to 60 guests with an additional hands-on kitchen for up to 10 people. Private events can be reserved for birthdays, anniversaries, wedding and baby showers, and all types of corporate and incentive events. The adjacent market is filled with New Mexican products and cookware.
