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.

Cozymeal guest reviews for other experiences with Chef Elham

This was a fun gathering, especially as an outing for my husband and I that was surprisingly very close to our house. It was nice to converse with other participants where we all had varying levels of cooking experience. I appreciate Chef Elham's conversational instruction that wasn't heavily demonstrative. It was a great dinner and I look forward to trying one of the recipes at home.

We had a great time! Chef Elham opened up her home to us, had all the ingredients ready and provided a nice set up. There were 8 people in the class which made it a lot more fun. Such a great experience. The downside to it (nothing to do with the chef) the app needs to be more clear on the area that you’re booking the class in… And… There needs to be more communication before they take your money. This is legit class and the company is real. The way they book the class makes you feel like it is a scam. Other than that, Chef Elham made it a positive and fun experience.
