Team Building Activity: Make Risotto and Italian Eats With the Team

Gather your group for this exciting team building activity for Italian food lovers. The team will get an insightful culinary lesson from Chef Elham, including tips regarding balancing flavor profiles and new kitchen techniques.

Join instructor Chef Elham as you begin your meal with an expertly curated charcuterie board and crisp spring salad tossed in flavorful balsamic dressing. You’ll then learn to make perfectly creamy chicken and mushroom risotto with rich Parmesan and pine nuts. Your group will also create a colorful risotto with seasonal vegetables for a lighter option. To end your culinary adventure, you’ll create a bright lemon tart filled with refreshing flavor and topped with freshly whipped cream. Your team will enjoy some high-quality eats and camaraderie outside of the office!

The class was fun and we learned things we didn’t know. Did you know that if you have a good garlic press, you don’t even have to peel the clove? We learned that and lots more.

Chef Elham was the best!! My girlfriend and I had so much fun in her sushi class and she was so welcoming. She made us feel so at home in her own kitchen.
