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.

Chef Paco put together a great class for us! Very hands on and interactive. Super informative and even sent us home with dough to get started on our own! Looking forward to booking another class with him soon!

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.

While using his creative talents working for two of Chicago's most prominent catering companies, Chef Paco was simultaneously honing his culinary skills in the kitchens of many iconic Chicago restaurants. These experiences working in upscale restaurants and with renowned catering companies, paired with his international work experiences in Italy, Mexico, and Romania all come together and are on display for all to see during his can't-miss cooking classes.
