M RESORT SPA CASINO UNVEILS NEW SHOW: Martini Time with Chef Tina Martini
Opening January 26, newest live show in Las Vegas mixes cooking with nutrition, fitness and wellness for a deliciously entertaining and educational experience
LAS VEGAS - January 15, 2010 - The M Resort Spa Casino, the newest four–star boutique resort in Las Vegas, is proud to introduce a new type of show to the city. Opening January 26, Martini Time with Chef Tina Martini will be the only show of its kind in Las Vegas when it debuts inside the custom–built cooking studio within the M Resort's buffet.
Similar to a network television cooking show, the 60–minute Martini Time with Chef Tina Martini treats a live audience to entertaining and educational demonstrations, complimentary food/beverage sampling and a special "handy hints" and "tasty tips" handout – a Chef Tina signature. The five–day–a–week show covers a variety of topics centering on three key areas of living healthy: nutrition, fitness and mind/body.
Widely known as the "naturopathic chef," Chef Tina makes healthy living fun covering topics like "Some Like it Hot and Fast, Some Like it Low and Slow" – BBQ and grilling techniques; "Beautiful Foods for a Beautiful You" – Skincare inside and out; "The Ocean's Abundance" – Everything seafood; "The Gourmet Vegetarian" – High–end meatless dishes and "Weight Loss for Food Lovers" – Facts about fat loss while enjoying delicious foods.
"My shows are about real food and real fun. It's about wellness – eating great and feeling great. I give practical advice, tips and techniques to empower people in various areas of their life," said Chef Tina.
Martini Time with Chef Tina Martini is presented exclusively inside Studio B Buffet's intimate cooking studio – which features multiple TV cameras and lights, the latest Viking appliances and state–of–the–art kitchen cutlery and equipment. The kitchen within a kitchen concept was custom–built specifically for an ongoing cooking show.
"So many people want to learn – whether it's learning cooking techniques, entertainment tips or strategies for better health and wellness. Tina brings tremendous knowledge in all those areas. She's witty, energetic and most importantly personable. We're looking forward to having her as our resident show chef," said Anthony A. Marnell III, Chairman and CEO of the M Resort.
Tickets will go on sale later this month. Ticket prices will include a Studio B Buffet lunch or dinner (depending on show times) as well as reserved seating at the buffet immediately following the show. Guests must be 12 years or older to attend. The resort also plans to launch a dedicated Web portal for Chef Tina with recipes, video and updates and tips from Chef Tina.
