Team Building Activity - Kitchen Face-Off

Rise to the challenge in this fun and engaging team building battle!

With culinary credentials firmly rooted in Paris and Le Cordon Bleu, Chef Phoebe brings her knowledge of global flavors and entertaining instruction to this hands-on team building challenge. Bring plenty of team spirit as your group participates in a head-to-head culinary battle, racing against time to prepare a winning dish.

This interactive class will see participants divided into separate teams, each armed with a basket of market-fresh ingredients plus free range of the chef’s stocked pantry. The timed mission is to create a menu of side dishes and an original pizza from your ingredients which Chef Phoebe will then evaluate on composition, taste and presentation. Afterwards, raise a glass to your team’s hard work and sit down to enjoy the teams’ creations as well as a decadent dessert, prepared by the chef.

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

A+ again! We've worked with Phoebe for four years now and each year is a hit. The dim sum event was especially fun and delicious. See you next year!

We had a wonderful time learning from and cooking with Phoebe in her beautiful home. We were lucky enough to use her wood fired oven, which was a wonderful treat (you'll no doubt want one after this experience). Phoebe was incredibly knowledgeable about cooking techniques, the ingredients we used and what makes the perfect pizza dough. Beyond her experience and deep knowledge of the culinary arts, Phoebe was very welcoming and a delight to be around and discuss all things food with (ask her about her favorite restaurants and grocery stores in the city!). In total we made around 8-10 pizzas and for dessert, Phoebe prepared the most delectable flourless chocolate cake that was out of this world. Phoebe was also kind enough to take home leftovers to enjoy with our loved ones :) I highly recommend this cooking experience for your team or family. Great fun all around!
