I have been to a lot of team building events in my time, and I have never heard so many people be so positive about one. I got so many compliments from the attendees. Almost unanimous approval is hard to come by.

Team Building Chefs!

Who hasn’t imagined being a Chef for a day? Dressed in dazzling whites, armed with ingenuity as their main tool, your team will be transformed into “Iron Chefs” – racing against the clock, everyone pitching in to bring their team to victory.

‘ Another big thanks for a great team building event that we are still talking about!

If you would please send the recipes from our dinner we would be soooo happy.

Hope to work with you again soon!

This is no “audience style” cooking demonstration. Your team will actually cook their own banquet. Lead by a professional chef the program is arranged to mimic a restaurant kitchen with its unique challenges and team philosophy. Just as in a professional kitchen teams must often succeed with limited resources and time, your team will soon discover cooperation and mutual support is how to rise to the challenge.

The highlight of the day is the banquet and award ceremony, where teams enjoy a banquet of their own creation. But these awards are not for taste and eye appeal alone, but for perseverance and team spirit.

The Activity

Professional chefs often work in tight spaces and are frequently “under the gun” as far as time, tools and resources are concerned. To be successful chefs must think on their feet, using their ingenuity and working in harmony, supporting all team members to achieve their mission.

The Process

Using a format similar to the “Iron Chef” television program, the group must produce their banquet within an allotted time frame. The mission that must drive the entire team — the whole banquet must be completed at the exact moment specified. To achieve this it will be necessary for all teams to work interdependently.

When the banquet is complete the team will sit down together and will enjoy the fruit of their labors.
