Opened in 2007, Classic Cooking marches under the banner of classic French cooking techniques while using Native American ingredients and dietary foundations. Classically trained French chef and owner Pascal Dionot draws on his extensive training in France, Germany, and Spain to elucidate the finer points of cooking, dining, and fingertip kissing during cooking classes tailored for both career-minded gastronomers and novices. Catering services take Classic Cooking's French–Native American fusion on the road to feed handfuls of hungry partygoers or infinite imaginary friends.
Taekwondo master Diane Muniz doesn't just equip her students and set them loose—she trains right alongside them. That's because her main goal at Momentum Taekwondo Academy is to keep everyone moving and growing both physically and mentally in the art of tae kwon do, herself included. Armed with a fourth-degree black belt, she and her students work on the footwork and dynamic movements distinct to the Korean martial art at tae kwon do classes. Or students can opt for kickboxing to add some extra calorie-burning to their martial-arts regimes.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Next to the scenic McDowell Mountain Golf Club, Mesquite Grille tantalizes tastebuds with an eclectic menu of contemporary American cuisine. Executive Chef Mark Hamilton draws from years of experience cooking at cafes and resorts in Michigan, Virginia, and Louisiana to create dishes that evoke zesty Southwestern classics, cowboy fare, Chicago-Italian cuisine, and Midwestern home cooking. Guests can dine on savory bowls of chili, spicy green-chile pork sandwiches, or burgers and sandwiches made with sirloin, chicken, and fresh veggies. Like a well-worn plaid tuxedo, the space blends refined elegance with a rustic quality by surrounding diners with stunning desert vistas, the warmth of a roaring fire, and accents of wood and adobe.
