If you’ve fallen in love with the tastes of New Mexico (chile, burritos, tamales, and more), then this recreational cooking school is a must for your visit. The school offers classes nearly every day, year round. Topics include those on rellenos, tamales, mole, and other dish-specific classes. For a deep dive into local foods, consider the multi-day Southwest Culinary Boot Camp. Expert local chefs teach the classes and many are hands-on—giving you the tools to create these dishes at home. If you’re more of a taster than a maker, join one of the school’s restaurant walking tours to get a behind the scenes look at several of the city’s favorite restaurants.
