If you can’t join us for a Week Long Class, consider a weekend getaway to the lovely village of Corrales, located along the Rio Grande on the outskirts of Albuquerque. The Weekend Classes begin with a get-acquainted reception at 5 p.m. on Friday evening.
You will jump right into the class beginning at 6 p.m. with hints and tips for the evening’s recipes. You will cook and enjoy a full dinner complete with Perfect Margaritas.
Saturday and Sunday sessions begin at 8:30 AM with a Southwestern continental breakfast, followed by Jane’s review of the history of the cuisine and major ingredients. A demonstration of the menu items for the day follows, along with hints and techniques for success. Typically, you will cook in groups of two or three. Jane and her staff will guide you through the recipes.
Each session concludes with a bountiful meal of the foods you have prepared accompanied with your choice of beverage including appropriate wines and beers. Saturday and Sunday sessions conclude by about 2 p.m.
