Team Building Activity: Sushi Smackdown With the Team

Bring your crew to the kitchen for a slicing and ricing sushi competition in this team building activity from Chef Vivian and Michi! They get your gang in on the sushi magic and put them to the test with a delicious culinary challenge.

Next up will be a demonstration of supreme sushi practices, including choosing and preparing the right fish and creating rice that's perfectly textured for the roll-up. Then, it's knives out for the main event, a sushi smackdown in which the team breaks into groups to compete for the title of Best Sushi on the Block! Enjoy bonding with the team and tons of delicious chef-approved eats.


All necessary cooking equipment, dinnerware and utensils will be provided by the chef. The venue is required to have access to an outlet, sinks nearby, tables set-up to prep and garbage containers. Chefs are able to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes in advance.

Chef Vivian and Chef Michi were exceptional! The myth of making sushi is no longer a mystery. I appreciated the kindness, patience, and cozy ambience they provided to my wife and I. I highly recommend this activity!!
