Chili Cook-Off

Our Chili Cook-Off combines fun cooking team building activities with creative culinary skill. An event kickoff results in the formation of teams, who will each have a designated table equipped with all the necessary cookware, utensils, and a stove.

Our Chili Cook-Off program now features Apple iPads® delivering text, audio and video clues, chili trivia, exciting gaming challenges, and the ability to capture and save all your memories of this delicious event with photos and video of your teams in action.

In the center of the room will be the “marketplace,” where teams will select ingredients to craft their savory southwestern dish!

This spicy cooking team building competition will require organization and teamwork; therefore, a head chef will be designated from the start whose responsibility is to oversee the specific assignments for the rest of the team.

Several tasks will be occurring simultaneously including prepping and cooking the chili, decorating their head chef’s apron, and creating a presentation and chant that will showcase the uniqueness of their team.

When the judging begins, scorecards will be utilized to award points based on creativity, presentation, and taste. One team will emerge triumphant as the reigning Chili Cook-Off Champions! Judges can either be members of the participating company or event staff.

Other options for this fun cooking team building event include adding our famous Margarita or Sangria Challenge and incorporating southwestern trivia. To ensure a great experience, aspects of these team building activities may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.
