Team Building Activity: Mastering Rustic Italian Favorites

Gather your crew for a unique team building activity with Chef Dan. Together, everyone will learn authentic Italian cooking techniques as they prepare timeless recipes. Learning new skills will invigorate their creative thinking and help strengthen the team bond.

Your team will begin by toasting garlic crostini to be topped with zesty herbed cheese and traditional Italian salami. Next, they’ll work together to prepare a mouthwatering baked zucchini stuffed with fresh tomatoes, onions and tangy goat cheese. They’ll enjoy an expertly-cooked chicken breast simmering in a rich wine-based sauce. The chicken will be served over a savory, aromatic bed of Milanese-style rice. For dessert, they’ll indulge in the chef’s favorite: decadent chocolate tiramisu parfait.

We did a class with Chef Dan as a Manager Meeting Activity and it was so great! The event allowed everyone to participate but also allowed for networking and talking! He was also very accommodating in helping us find a venue for the activity!

Shout out to Chef Dan! He’s so charming friendly kind and knowledgeable!! I Took my best friend to this class and we both absolutely loved it! The food was incredibly delicious- some of the best flavors we’ve ever had! Don’t hesitate if you are wondering if you would like this class. Wear comfortable shoes as you will be standing a lot, eat a light supper Bf you come since cooking takes a few hours and if you’re afraid of Covid and germs just stay home and forego enjoying a fun evening of cooking with a true pro whose cooked for presidents and celebrities! From a mom whose cooked for years for my family - I wish I’d met Dan 30 years ago to learn so many cooking secrets!

Amazing experience! We don’t often splurge, but I’m glad we did! We joined for the fancy Italian dinner and it was so yummy! Everything was planned, prepared, and organized perfectly! We even got to bring home extra food & ingredients! Dan was a great host! He was kind and flexible and helped us do everything perfectly.
