Team Building Activity: Cooking Competition: Sushi Roll Rivalry

With tons of fresh sushi and some friendly competition, this team building activity will be one for the books. Chef Desiree will provide your team with a complete lesson in sushi-making, from cooking sushi rice to selecting and slicing ingredients to rolling and plating a restaurant-worthy sushi roll. After that, it's time for some excitement and lively competition!

Prepared with ingredients and sushi know-how, your group will break up into teams to create their own specialty sushi rolls to compete for the win. Witness the natural leaders, team-players and creative thinkers do their thing as everyone works towards supreme sushi bragging rights. In the end, teams will be judged on their dish's flavor, appearance, and innovative name.
