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 a cooking class at the Creative Cooking School on West Sahara Avenue (up to a $99 value).
At the Creative Cooking School, students can refine their slicing and dicing skills with practical hands-on training under the instruction of a staff of experienced chefs. 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 at the end of the class. Consult the convenient schedule to find out which classes are available on a weekly basis (Tuesday–Saturday), and gain the skills you need to impress your peers with culinary pizzazz at haiku-reading and rap-battle after-parties.
- 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
