Team Building Activity: Introduction to Sweet and Savory Baking

In this engaging team building activity with Chef Ivan, you and your team will learn how to make sweet and savory handmade baked treats from scratch. Chef Ivan will guide your team through the basics of baking stuffed rolls and pizza using a simple bread roll dough and a pizza dough. After making your dough, you'll then stuff and bake your bread dough with both sweet and savory fillings like mushrooms and leeks or Nutella and jam. Then, you'll grab your pizza dough and learn how to roll, top and bake the perfect homemade pizza pie. Your class will then end on a sweet note with hazelnut chocolate pralines for dessert.

Chef Ivan and his team were friendly and patient throughout the whole process. It was an engaging experience and my partner and I enjoyed making the pasta dough since it was our first time. The pasta was so delicious and it was nice enjoying the fruits of our labor at the end!

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.
