Team Building Activity: Cooking Competition
If you're ready for a team building activity with a bit of friendly competition, join Chef Paco as he leads you and your team in a three-round cooking competition. Each round will consist of a unique cooking challenge, after which the judges will decide who created the best dishes and crown them victorious. In the first round, everyone will attempt to find the most creative way to serve an ordinary mixed green salad. Moving on to round two, you'll all battle it out to see who can create the most exquisite and gourmet masterpiece from a mystery basket of ingredients. Lastly, the third and final round will end the cook-off with a show-stopping bang, featuring a task involving explosive flavors and pyrotechnic presentation.

Great evening! Chef Paco is knowledgeable, friendly and a great teacher. He was patient yet directive and worked individually, as needed, with each participant. Made us feel we could easily recreate these recipes at home! Highly recommend!!

Wonderful class! We went for a birthday and learned a lot. Chef Paco is great at direction while also making it fun. Overall, loved the class and hope to take more of his classes. An expert in pasta making. Would recommend adding bread with the first tomato and mushroom gnocchi course to sop up that delicious sauce.
