Test your crew's collaboration skills with a team building pasta-making cooking class.

Preparing pasta becomes a team building challenge in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Desmond. He'll get your group working on a traditional Italian meal with a hearty dash of competition in the mix.

Your team breaks into smaller groups before assembling a classic tomato and basil bruschetta appetizer. The pressure mounts as your iron chefs prepare their own homemade pasta and topping selections, plus a batch of lemon curd Napoleons for dessert. Teams will sample each other's creations as Chef Desmond assesses and ranks their pasta presentations.

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