About this experience

Learn about the unique cuisine of Santa Fe, New Mexico, where chiles are the key ingredient in nearly every dish! You'll learn how to make sauces from green and chiles, fresh and dried. Shannon will show you how to use those sauces for many different dishes, and you'll have the confidence to create your own recipes (even desserts!) using chiles.

Whisking Away to Santa Fe

What to expect

You and Chef Shannon Smith will meet in your kitchen (over video chat) to cook, taste, share stories, and acquire valuable skills that will last well beyond your time together.


This Delicious Experience is not a pre-recorded cooking video, big Zoom gathering, or the kind of online course where your eyes glaze over; it is a one-of-a-kind private experience where you will work together with Chef Shannon Smith to create something amazing in your kitchen.


After booking, you will communicate with the chef to adapt the experience and menu to your tastes and interests, then receive a customized ingredients list.


Prior to your online cooking class we will provide you with a Zoom link and any assistance you may need to connect to the experience from your laptop, tablet, or phone.

Connect up to 2 screens to share the experience with friends or family. Contact us for discounted rates on additional screens.
