creating the product

Guests are united into small teams, where they must collaborate in order to create a dish, (or dishes, drink, and dessert, based on client scope and requirements) utilizing ingredients such as herbs, spices, sauces, produce, and much more and secret ingredients based on the particular theme of the challenge, and present it in a fun and creative way.

In order to help create and present the dishes within the given timeframe, teams are provided with roles, such as project manager, purchasing, marketing, etc. based on their strengths.


One or all team members can present to the panel of judges, in a creative, interesting manor. Past presentations have been songs, cheers, plays, or even simple descriptions. Team collaboration and group development and bonding are key parts of the event.
