Our team had a fantastic time at this teambuilding event. We did the team cook-off competition with 4 teams of 3, each team was provided a different protein and variety of ingredients. We had to work as a team to come up with meal idea and execute it. Chef Paco was engaging and provided guidance as needed. Location was a fun environment. Would definitely recommend.
