Seated in the kitchen, pairs watch as the chef prepares a variety of internationally influenced cuisines across six courses, each of which diners indulge in once they've been plated.

The Cooking Studio
The kitchen is the heart of any restaurant, so it's no surprise that the best seats in the house are the ones closest to the action. That's definitely the case at the Cooking Studio at Escape at Wind Creek. There, the Chef's Table sits, ready to host intimate dinners served right next to the chefs that prepared them. Whether they're dining from the month's prix fixe menu or collaborating with the cooking team to create their own meal, diners can watch every chop and simmer as dishes take shape under the expert guidance of resident chefs.
Diners interested in the culinary arts can also try their hand at stovetop techniques during the studio's cooking classes. Helped along by guidance from an expert chef and an ample stock of Wolf Sub-Zero equipment, students in each class man six cooking stations where they craft themed repasts. Their handiwork ranges from Mediterranean spreads to a modernized Thanksgiving dinner, which substitutes ostrich for turkey and instructs apple pie to make itself over video chat. Alternatively, students can learn via demonstration-only classes, then practice their new skills at home. No matter the class chosen, students end the sessions by dining on each newly crafted dish.
