Team-Building Competition Experience

Bring everyone together in the kitchen for a friendly three-hour competition and tasty fun! For our Team-Building Competition Experience we create two teams and pair with an in-house chef to create their game plan. Using our pantry ingredients and creative minds, groups create a tasty main course and a delicious dessert. Side dishes and additional accompaniments to compliment team dishes will be provided by our chefs. At the completion of cooking, the chefs will begin the judging with points being earned. 

Winners are announced during a shared victory meal. Accolades included. Bring your creativity and competitive spirit!

This event format is available for groups of up to 18 guests.
