Team Building Activity - Iron Chef Cooking Competition

Join Chef Ivan for a fun and exciting Iron Chef-style cooking competition with your team!

In this hands-on team building experience hosted by Chef Ivan, you and your group will be divided into two teams and then will go head to head to see who can cook up the best dish.

Each team will be assigned a basket with a main ingredient — pork, chicken, or salmon — and two surprise ingredients that must be used. Teams will have one hour and 30 minutes to prepare and plate their final dishes. Chef Ivan will be available to both teams to assist with questions about tools and techniques.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Dona was wonderful with our group and a tough judge! We had a team outing and the Chef was highly accommodating. Highly recommend to other teams.

We had our semi annual company wide event with Chef Iva and his team, and we chose the Chopped Cooking Challenge! Chef Ivan and his team did such a great job in setting this event up, and our team had so much fun. Chef Ivan took all of our dietary preferences and allergies into account and created a super tasty and easy to use ingredients table. Their feedback when judging our dishes was also accurate and hilarious - one group undercooked their chicken, and the Chefs made it known haha! We'll definitely book another team event.
