Private Cooking Classes

Creating community in the kitchen & around the table.

Open Kitchen is excited to offer customized and curated private cooking events at our location for you and your closest family, friends, and colleagues. We have three dining rooms with separate entrances that provide an intimate, inviting, and safe environment that meets all current NM Health Orders.


We currently offer private cooking events from Wednesday to Sunday with three time slots (8 am to 11 am, 12 pm to 3 pm, and 5 pm to 8pm). Modifications to these offerings may be available upon request. 


Below are some sample menus of previously held cooking classes and parties that Open Kitchen has designed for our guests. These can be customized as hands-on, chef’s demonstration, or a hybrid. You can also suggest a theme or specific menu you’d like for your private event!


Each private cooking event:

• Includes all food ingredients, written recipes, private chef instruction, cooking equipment and accessories, and dining service ware. Full buy-out of Open Kitchen’s space of 3 private dining rooms may be available. Please let us know if this is an option you’d like to discuss.
• Approximately 3 hours in length
• Minimum of 6 guests and a maximum of guests per the NM Health Order restriction on “mass gathering.”
• Minimum fee of $650 for most cooking menus (for up to 6 guests) plus 20% facility/service fee and applicable taxes.
• Add-ons such as nibbles, decorations, music, floral, alcohol service, wine pairing/tasting/education, etc. are available.
• Please review our Cooking Class Policy.
• Private cooking event hosts wishing to provide alcohol please review our Alcohol Policy.
