Team Building Activity: Pasta Palooza: Cooking Competition

Experience the ultimate combination of fun and food in this team building activity led by Chef Jenna. Your team will get to learn authentic methods for making fresh pasta by hand from an expert chef before they roll up their sleeves to compete for pasta bragging rights. 

After Chef Jenna demonstrates pasta-making and recipes for two classic sauces, the group will split into teams. Putting their heads together, teams will make and shape their pasta dough before creating their own unique sauce using various mix-in ingredients. In the end, teams will be judged on their dish's appearance, taste and overall creativity.

Treat your team to an invigorating team building activity that allows for team bonding, creative thinking and plenty of great eats!
