Learn kitchen skills from an expert and get excited for some friendly (or feisty!) competition in this fun team building activity. Chef Blake will give your team a culinary crash course, including techniques and recipes for making fresh guacamole and salsa. Once everyone's learned the basics, the competition will set in!
Everyone will split into groups and work together to compete for the title of Guacamole Guru! Using their natural strengths in leadership and problem-solving, groups will get a serious exercise in creative thinking as they use a wide variety of ingredients to create their own unique guacamole and salsa flavors. From fiery habanero peppers to blue cheese crumbles to bacon and smoked salmon, the combinations and flavors are nearly endless! Teams will be judged on the creativity, appearance and overall taste of their dishes.
Treat the team to a team building activity that strengthens their teamwork skills, lets them have fun and provides them with plenty of tasty bites!
All necessary utensils will be provided by the chef. The venue is required to have access to sinks nearby, tables set-up to prep and garbage containers. Chefs are able to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes in advance.

Chef Blake provided a wonderful experience for my corporate team event! I received a call from him the day before to check-in with me and my group. When I asked for accommodations for vegetarians, he was able to come prepared with an alternative recipe (tofu instead of shrimp). He was knowledgeable and informative about buying good produce, knife skills, prepping food, and cooking. He let us prepare/cook as much or as little as we wanted, he would take over if we wanted to take a break and drink some beer. We had a child with us, and he was inclusive of all ages. I highly recommend this event with Chef Blake!

Blake provided warm hospitality and comforting home cooked food. Honestly the whole experience was good for the soul.
With nearly 15 years of experience under his belt, it's no secret that Chef Blake is passionate about one thing: food. However, if you asked Chef Blake, "food" encompasses more than just ingredients. Being a chef is a profession that he does not take lightly, and he strives to put his entire heart and soul into every endeavor that he has undertaken, including having served as a line chef and sous chef at several well-known eateries and a prestigious steakhouse. With a background in visual design, he sees his culinary practice as another artform that requires methodology, attention to detail and passionate creativity. Let Chef Blake pass his skills and passion along to you!
