how it works

During culinary challenge, individuals are brought together into small groups where team members are assigned or collaborate to create roles.

Teams have a specific amount of time, usually 25-30 minutes, where they create an item and present it to a team of judges. Winning teams receive a small prize.

We provide kitchens, ingredients, spices, recipes, chefs, emcees, transportation, clean up crew, sound, and anything else that is needed.

A culinary challenge is typically accompanied with drinks and appetizers prior and during, a meal (and paired drinks or even open bar), or reception follows the judgement.
