The Basic Teambuilding Premise
Our chefs will masterfully and delightfully guide the competitors through rounds of competition in which they must prove their culinary skills, intellectual prowess and their ability to pull together as a cohesive teambuilding unit. The competition can get tough, but the atmosphere always remains fun and humorous.
Suggested Teambuilding Formats
Competitors are divided into equal teams for these teambuilding events and they are assigned a table with the same variety of ingredients. Each team must creatively work together to prepare a dish without a recipe. We can accommodate groups of twenty to forty at New Orleans School of Cooking and forty-one to one hundred twenty guests at our sister company, the Riverview Room (additional charge may apply for this venue).
