Team Building Theme: Chopped Competition
Event Description: Take the best of the Food Network's Iron Chef and Bravo™ Channel's Top Chef, apply it to a team format, and get out of the way as you become the star of your own kitchen. Intense, fun, and innovative are just some of the words that describe your team's experience. Our version of the Chopped team building exercise is perfect for sales, marketing, and executive teams that need the slight "edge" to add an interesting element to their experience.
You get all the thrills of competitive cooking and striving to outshine your opponent, but more than anything, you are the celebrity chefs in your kitchen! TeamSuperior begins with your participants arriving and wondering what they will be doing for the next few hours. They're handed an apron and asked to wash their hands in preparation. Soon our Chef begins the program with a brief but important orientation that includes safety lessons, basic knife skills and rules on how to win the ultimate cooking challenge!
The group is then quickly formed into teams, either by our Chefs or by you beforehand. Each team chooses a team leader (or “Chef de Cuisine”) and the countdown begins, 3,2,1
Each team's chef de cuisine rips open the team's specific instructions to expose the “culinary Challenge” of the day. Each team takes 5 minutes to plan their battle, and then the cooking begins. The winning food is judged on the following criteria: 25% Food Taste; 25% Spectacular Presentation; 25% Team Spirit; 25% Salesmanship (more on this later). Each team strives to achieve the accolade of “Ultimate Cooking Champion!”
Each team has 2 hours to complete the challenge, oh, and that is without the use of recipes! Guidelines are given, not complete recipes. Teams must rely on each other’s life skills and experiences to be successful, just like in the real world of business. Also, because there are no recipes to hold you back, teams are allowed to improve upon their creations by roaming the room and bartering for ingredients with other teams, the very people that they are competing against!
At the conclusion of the cooking part of the program, time is called, participants raise up their hands to indicate that cooking is complete. The judges table is presented with a single serving from each team on a decorated plate. The participants are judged both for the small plate presentation as well as the large platter presentation. All of the participants now help themselves to the outcome that they all contributed to, a multi-cultural, gourmet buffet that would make any professional chef proud.
But first, you take a moment to admire your creation and to celebrate a successful group effort before enthusiastically consuming the sumptuous feast. It's during the meal when the real team building occurs. Now the ice has broken and a new paradigm of behavior has begun, people bond even further while dining together. This is the “magic time” - when everyone starts sharing about who they really are when not a company employee. After the meal the value continues. To anchor this experience into each participant, your culinary coach facilitator will lead the group in an appropriate conclusion of the event. It could range from a full debrief that challenges the group to find the meaning of what was learned during the program or have each team present to the rest of the group, their team name, their team sound what whey created today and a compelling reason why their team should earn the title, “Ultimate Cooking Championship”.to the judges.
Once each team has presented, each team's score is now tabulated and your culinary coach prepares to announce the winner. But not until your culinary coach shares a few valuable insights to the success of all of the teams and the valuable lessons they may take back with them.
Finally the program concludes with the awards ceremony as the most deserving team is honored with a certificate naming them “Ultimate Cooking Champion
