Team Building Activity: Southwestern Grilling Workshop

Learn how to grill like a pro and sharpen your knife skills with this team building activity led by Chef Danushka. In this hands-on Southwest-style grilling class, you and your team will prepare a gourmet four-course meal, starting with a Southwestern salad of corn, tomatoes, black beans and creamy avocado dressing. Then, you'll learn how to grill up your entrée, with a choice of either cilantro and lime marinated skirt steak or honey and chipotle chicken. Next, you'll whip up Southwest rice to serve alongside your perfectly seared steak or chicken. Lastly, your meal will end with either dark chocolate brownies or tres leches cake for dessert.

This cozy home and kitchen left one of the best impressions for my date and I. We were lucky enough to choose a night where no one else were scheduled, so we got a private cooking experience with Chef Danushka. Our favorite part was that she took pictures of us and the results of our dishes which we can cherish for future memories to come. Very hospitable host, simple delicious creative dishes with a focus on ingredients, fun hands on experience, BYOB so she joined us in the celebration, and a wonderful light dessert to close out the meal. I recommend to anyone looking for an entertaining evening I would come back most definitely. Warning she is hysterically blunt and will make you cook, so be ready to impress the chef!
