Santa Fe School of Cooking

Food in the Family

Contributed by Where Women Cook

Turning an appreciation of good, local food into a thriving family business has been a deliciously successful recipe for Susan Curtis and Nicole Curtis Ammerman. For more than 24 years they have been dedicated to sharing the flavors and techniques of authentic New Mexican cuisine with food lovers around the world through the Santa Fe School of Cooking and Market, which has earned the respect and support of the Santa Fe culinary community and enriched the lives of countless home cooks.

Although there is plenty of work involved in running a homegrown family business, fun has been a byword for us. We’ve published three cookbooks, testing the recipes on family and friends, expanded the number and variety of our classes and products, and in 2012 we moved into a large historic building, allowing us to create exciting new activities. And we love our guests, who are just the best, and they return multiple times to acquire new skills and generously share their own family cooking stories.

The market has evolved from its origins as a supply source for items we needed for classes, expanding into a vast lines of products that simply cant be found elsewhere. From spices and sauces to black La Chamba cookware, alligator-wood cutting boards, and stovetop grills for roasting chile, our students can get whatever they need to keep their kitchen bubbling with the sights and scents of New Mexico.

“I was raised in Idaho, summering on a ranch near the Snake River, and you could say that good food is in my blood. Cooking was as family affair, with everyone welcome at our abundant table. I raised my two daughters as I had been raised, sitting down nightly to eat together. I’m a solid cook, but as the girls got older each had to make dinner once a week. We ate a lot of tuna casserole and chicken divan on those nights!”
