Chef Morillo inside the Show Kitchen at Studio B

DSC_2359For those of you who don't already know, the Studio B Buffet is home to an amazing live-action show kitchen and production studio. In addition to serving great food, this feature of the buffet really sets us apart from other properties and allows our guests to enjoy cooking demonstrations by our own culinary experts, as well as special appearances by guest chefs.

This week, native Las Vegan and owner of Crave Catering in New York, Chef Marco Morillo stopped by the studio to entertain our audience and showcase three of his amazing recipes. Our RSVP list was completely full within a few days of announcing the demonstrations and it was great to see how many of our guests wanted to attend. Food is such an important part of the M and it's wonderful to know that you guys share our passion and are interested in expanding your own culinary knowledge. Day1-2

Over the course of three days, Chef Marco conducted a total of nine demonstrations. Chef Marco is no stranger to how things run at the M as he was the first apprentice chef to work for the Marnell family at the Rio. Since then, Chef Marco has relocated to New York, where he and his wife Debbie own and operate a successful full-service catering and event company.DSC_2343

Chef taught us all how to cook Coca-Cola BBQ Ribs, Fussili Pasta and our personal favorite, Soba Noodles with Seared Ahi Tuna.
