Team Building Cooking Competition

At The Cooking Studio in Fort Collins, we offer team cooking competitions to encourage team building and communication skills among staff and employees. Our cooking competitions require team strategy, creativity, and the ability to stay on a timeline and communicate effectively with others.

What Is It?

It’s a fast-based, timed, Iron Chef-ish cooking competition. When you bring your team into our cooking studio for a team building cooking competition, each team will get their own recipe and ingredients to create a dish, and it is up to each team to add their own personal touch to each course. We also ask each cooking team to incorporate one secret ingredient into their dish.

Don’t Worry, Our Chef Instructors Are Here To Help!

If you feel intimidated at the thought of creating a delicious dish from scratch — don’t worry! Our chef instructor and chef assistant(s) will be circulating the cooking studio to help each team throughout the preparation and cooking process. Once each team has prepared their own unique dish, the cooking competition will be judged in three different categories: the best presentation, the best use of the secret ingredient, and the best dish overall. Our chef instructor and chef assistant(s) will serve as your culinary judges.

  • Our team building cooking competitions can accommodate groups of 2 to 25 people (we can host larger groups on a case-by-case basis).
  • Dates and times are based on our cooking studio’s availability. We recommend starting at 1:30pm for afternoon events and 6:00pm for evening events.
  • We can accommodate special requests for cuisine or dish type, as well as food preferences.
