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.

It was a lovely experience! I brought my mother and cousin, it was their birthday gifts, and we had a great time! It was a thoughtfully planned out dinner and I couldn't have asked for a better meal and time! Thank you so much!

Chef Paco was awesome. He is a good teacher. He is friendly and humorous. We really enjoyed the setting in his home. It was lovely. We really liked how nicely the table was set and how well the kitchen was set up for our class. We were served a salad and a dessert in addition to the food we learned to cook. Paco is a natural teacher.
