Give a guy a fish, and he'll eat for a day; teach a guy to make perfect sushi rolls, and he'll be the culinary king of the cul de sac. Find out why your soufflé always falls, or learn the basics of braising and roasting and the dark art of broasting with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get one cooking class at the Creative Cooking School on West Sahara Avenue (a $99 value).
At the Creative Cooking School, students can refine their slicing and dicing skills without purchasing cybernetic gloves that peel hot dogs and fillet Spam cans with mind-controlled telekinesis. Thanks to a talented staff of experienced chefs, the Creative Cooking School provides students with practical hands-on training that helps them become proficient cooks. Participants will learn essential culinary techniques and recipe development while avoiding the cost and time commitment of enrolling in a traditional culinary school or the Starfleet Academy. More than 50 basic and advanced classes are available to choose from, including food and wine pairing, gluten-free cooking, desserts from Paris, and chainsaw centerpiece sculpting. The majority of classes are hands-on, and studious gourmands will get to devour the fruits of their labor by the end of the class. Consult the convenient schedule to find out which classes are available on a weekly basis and gain the skills you need to impress your peers with culinary pizzazz at haiku-reading and rap-battle after-parties.
Confront the power of béchamel by yourself, or buy two Groupons and bring a friend who may become more than a friend once the smell of rosemary scents the air and your hands casually brush while reaching for the paring knife.
This Groupon does not include kids camps and Saveur Cooks classes.
- Each student leaves with a thick sheath of recipes tucked under her arm, a much better Vegas souvenir than fuzzy dice. – Pauline Frommer
- What I remember most about my class is the way everyone connected. Vegas is not an easy city in which to meet people. And a common love for the kitchen, it turns out, is a powerful force for making friends. – Max Jacobson, Gourmet
