Like defusing a bomb or teaching an old cobra new tricks, cooking is a dangerous pastime best learned with hands-on instruction. Learn to survive in a kitchen with today's Groupon to The Cooking Studio, located inside Wind Creek Casino & Hotel in Atmore. Choose between two options:

• For $39, you get a three-hour cooking class (a $79 value).
• For $49, you get two three-hour Sunday or Thursday cooking classes (a $158 value).

The Cooking Studio schedules a variety of hands-on cooking classes every week, soaking flavor-hungry brains in the savory marinades of multiple cuisines. In a small-group setting, aspiring chefs study under a seasoned culinary kaiser to master the techniques of poaching, baking, carving, and saucing. With the Rajun Cajun course, guests co-create a shrimp étouffée sauce for blackened catfish, bananas foster made with craft vanilla-bean ice cream, and sautéed asparagus. The Savory Sauces class teaches cooks the five classical French mother sauces and the proper way to wring the marinaras out of a stubborn tomato. Following class, students will taste the fruits of their labors with a chef's choice meal at an elegant dinner table.

The Cooking Studio's kitchens are specially designed to create a welcoming, supportive atmosphere in which students are encouraged to interact with each other and their instructor. Classes range from 8 to 12 participants, allowing for plenty of confidence-boosting personal attention and motivational eye contact with the head chef.

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.
