Get ready to challenge your culinary skills and your team, and create gold medal-worthy dishes!

In this hands-on team building class with Chef Paco, you and your team will face off in a cooking competition comprised of three rounds. After each round, the judges will crown the creators of the best dishes victorious.

Round one will challenge the traditional way of serving an ordinary mixed green salad, round two will feature a mystery basket of ingredients you must transform into an exquisite epicurean masterpiece, and round three promises to be nothing short of show stopping with its explosive flavor profile and pyrotechnic presentation.

Guests are welcome to purchase wine and beer from the venue.

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.
