Team Building Activity: Who's the Next Iron Chef?

In this hands-on team building activity hosted by Chef Ivan, your team will engage in a riveting cooking competition to determine who's the next iron chef! First, your group will be divided into two teams. Then, each team will receive a basket with a main ingredient — pork, chicken or salmon — and two surprise ingredients that must be used. Next, the teams will put their culinary and teamwork skills to the test with one hour and 30 minutes to prepare and plate their final dishes. Throughout the challenge, Chef Ivan will be available to both teams to assist with questions about tools and techniques. After time's up, you'll share your creations!

I'm sure this course would have been wonderful, but for the second time in a row, I got a notification last minute saying not enough people had signed up and therefore they were canceling the class.

Food was delicious , the chef was great and the class was very informative. Atmosphere was also like walking into your grandma’s dining room for one big family dinner. Very fun!

The chefs were all knowledgeable and eager to share what they knew about not only the dishes we were making but also how to organize and run your kitchen, along with great knife skills. The food was fantastic and did not disappoint.
