On the heels of its national culinary debut on Bravo’s “Top Chef: Las Vegas,” M Resort will be launching a cooking show of its own next week.

This show won’t be on TV, but will take on a similar format. “Martini Time” with Chef Tina Martini will run five days a week in the resort’s Studio B Show Kitchen Buffet. Martini’s 60-minute show will focus on cooking techniques and nutrition, M Resort said.

“So many people want to learn – whether it’s learning cooking techniques, entertainment tips or strategies for better health and wellness,” M Resort Chairman and Chief Executive Anthony Marnell III said in a statement.

Martini brings 25 years of culinary experience and has assisted celebrities and professional athletes with healthy ways of cooking, M Resort said.

Since the beginning stages of construction of M Resort, plans were announced for a 500-seat buffet, featuring live-action cooking stations, where diners could learn tips and techniques from the resort’s chefs. The Studio B Show Kitchen Buffet appeared in episodes of “Top Chef,” as did the resort’s Italian restaurant, Marinelli’s.

“Martini Time” will begin Jan. 26 and will run Sundays through Thursdays at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tickets are $40, $50 and $60 and include lunch or dinner at the buffet, depending on the show time.
