To celebrate Women & Creativity month the Santa Fe School of Cooking and edible have put together a cooking series not to be missed. COOKING with DEBORAH MADISON – MARCH 6, 6PM Connecting people to the food they eat, its source, and its history has long been Madison’s work, and her writing reveals the deeper culture of food. Her interests lay with issues of biodiversity, seasonal and local eating, farmers markets, small and mid-scale farming, farmers and ranchers, gardens and gardeners. This class will embrace her food philosophy. COOKING with MICHELLE ROETZER – MARCH 15, 10AM Michelle brings almost thirty years of cooking experience to this class. She has cooked for numerous notables including presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Vicente Fox of Mexico. Michelle’s knowledge on the traditional foods of New Mexico is at the heart of this class, inviting you to experience this delicious cuisine through local cooking techniques and the lore of the region. COOKING with CHERYL JAMISON – MARCH 21, 10AM Few aspects of life in New Mexico say as much about our cultural heritage as our food. We can directly trace its development through the melding of Native, Spanish, Anglo, and other influences into a singular cuisine. Four-time James Beard Award-winning local author Cheryl Jamison will celebrate this cuisine with recipes from one of her books, Tasting New Mexico: 100 Years of Distinctive Home Cooking. She will pepper her demo class with tasty tales about researching her landmark book, and she will highlight New Mexico’s agricultural abundance. COOKING with LOIS ELLEN FRANK – MARCH 26, 10AM Lois is a Santa Fe-based Native American chef, Native American foods historian, culinary anthropologist, James Beard Award winning author, and photographer. She has spent over twenty years documenting the foods and life ways of Native American communities throughout the Southwest. Lois will discuss the long history of farming and plant usage that qualify Native Americans to be considered as America’s first great cooks. All classes at the Santa Fe School of Cooking, 125 N Guadalupe, Santa Fe $85 per person per class Reservations at 505-983-4511
