Team Building Activity - Team Building - Competition Style Cooking Class - Mystery Ingredients EDIT


For this team-building activity, guests will break into teams. Each team will have the same 4 ingredients which will be revealed after an introduction to the class and the rules for the competition. There will be one unique ingredient among the four.

The guests will be asked to make a main dish using all 4 ingredients, plus any pantry item ingredients that will be made available to them. They will also be limited to only 45 minutes. At the end of 45 minutes, each team will need to have their dish finished and plated.

The winner will be chosen based on taste, presentation, and creative use of the one unique ingredient.

To round off the meal, the guests will be served a spring salad with balsamic vinaigrette and dessert - not made by the students. They will only be concentrating on creating a main dish.

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