Immerse yourself in the art of Southwest and Tex Mex Cooking at a week long vacation cooking school in New Mexico.
The class begins with a get-acquainted reception at 6 p.m. on Sunday, followed by dinner at a local restaurant featuring New Mexican specialties.
Continental New Mexican breakfasts at 8:30 AM start each day, Monday through Friday, followed by Jane’s review of the history of Southwest cuisine and major ingredients. A demonstration of the menu items for the day follows, along with hints and techniques for success. After the demonstration, it is your turn to shine! Students begin cooking in small groups, guided through the recipes by Jane and her assistants.
Finally, you will enjoy the fruits of your labor with a bountiful lunch complete with your choice of beverage, including selected wines and beers. Each session concludes about 2 p.m.
