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.
