Team Building Activity: Cook a Festive Feast With the Crew

Bring your crew together for an insightful culinary lesson and an impressive feast with this hands-on team building activity. Chef Andy will be your group's expert guide as you all learn new kitchen skills and restaurant-worthy recipes.

To get started, everyone will enjoy a chef-made holiday hors d'oeuvres selection courtesy of Chef Andy. Then, they'll work together to make an elegant spinach and cranberry dip that celebrates a fusion of international flavors. Next, they'll toss together a charred grape and toasted pumpkin seed salad drizzled in a homemade mint honey dressing. For a hearty entrée, you'll prepare creamy mashed potatoes with your choice of protein. To wrap up the fun, everyone will enjoy hot chocolate and seasonal gingerbread scones.

Chef Andy was great and patient. He made us feel at ease making the pizza and he also provided a few helpful cooking tips throughout the way. We would definitely take another class from him.
