A few words about our studio

We welcome you to join us for a fantastic cooking experience with James Beard recognized chef, Chris Maher.  Classes take place in our Taos, New Mexico cooking studio or in an exotic location around the globe when you attend one of our culinary excursions.  Our Secret Suppers happen once a month in Taos, when Chef Chris creates a meal you will remember for a lifetime! But be sure to get on the guest list as our monthly ‘pop up restaurant’ fills up quickly…

We are also here to host your celebration, event or corporate retreat or team build activity on location, or in Taos with our private chef services, cooking classes or customized culinary travel experiences.
