We have the passion for great food and the social connection that comes along with it.

Our Culinary Team Building Events bring co-workers together to improve communication, hone problem-solving skills, build morale and have fun. Each person contributes their own personal skills to make great food together as part of a team and this becomes the focus for sharing, responsibility and making the most of each person’s individual skills. All teams work toward a common goal from preparing the food using tools of the trade, cooking the food with precise timing and plating the food with an eye for appealing excellence.

You can pick from our charitable event “Cooking For A Cause,” an exciting “Iron Chef Style” cook off competition, a “Nailed It” Style Cake Competition as well as a nonfood style team building event. Spending time together is a proven way to get the inspiration and the bonding flowing.

Teams must execute their mission and coordinate to complete their missions. Our chefs will be there to help guide the teams in these challenges.

Cuisine Challenges

Cutthroat kitchen Style Competition – Hands-On

Cutthroat Kitchen isn’t a typical cooking competition. A team of people working together must be able to outwit and, at times, sabotage opponents to win. This cooking competition features teams of people vying to win the culinary gold medal. At the beginning, $1,000.00 in play money is given to each of the teams to spend however they wish during the game. The teams spend the money at auctions to get things that could help them — like buying exclusive use of salt and pepper — or hinder their opponents — like prohibiting them from tasting a recipe in progress. Although the competitors want to make purchases at auction to improve the chances of winning, they don’t want to spend too much; the amount remaining in the winner’s bank helps determines the ultimate prize, the gold medal. They must also face the judges critique of their dishes. The judges have the final say on who the winner is.

Top Chef Challenge Relay – Hands-On

In this three-step competition, your group will be divided into teams and face off in three quick challenges that will require excellent teamwork and time management. This challenge is great for small and large groups. We start one challenge at a time and finish with some tasty appetizers made by the teams. This is a wonderful and perfect event for a group of foodies!

Teams will begin with a head-to-head Blind Taste Test. Team members will take turns tasting 5 foods while blind-folded. One point will be awarded for each correct answer.

Teams will then move to the Food Trivia Round. Each team will have 5 minutes to answer as many food trivia questions as possible. One point will be award for each correct answer.

Teams will then finish with a 60 Minute Appetizer Cooking Relay. Each team will select half of their members to participate before beginning the relay. The remaining team members will coach and cheer from the sidelines until it is their turn. Teams will be given recipes and ingredients. The first half of the team will have 30 minutes to prep and cook the food and then must hand off the cooking to other half of the team who will have 30 minutes to finish cooking the dishes and complete the presentation of the dishes. The appetizers must be finished when the final bell rings at the 60 minute mark. The teams will be judged on taste, presentation and teamwork and awarded a minimum of 5 bonus points and a maximum of 15 bonus points.

The team with the highest number of points wins!

Chopped Style Challenge – Hands-On

Next the teams will need to create a recipe name and come up with a list of ingredients based on the secret ingredients given. All the teams will have the same secret ingredients and will have one and a half hours to then prep, cook and present the meal in front of preselected judges. No recipes here, it’s all up to the teams working together to complete this challenge. Teams are presented with a mystery basket of secret ingredients. Teams have 90 minutes to make their dish and must incorporate their secret ingredient in a creative and delicious way. Each of the teams will be given full use of our dry goods, spices, freezer and refrigerator for their use. The Stocked Pot & Company culinary team of Chefs will serve as team coaches.

There’s a reason why the party always ends up in the kitchen! At The Stocked Pot and Company Cooking School, we turn a cooking lesson into a unique dining experience. Cooking parties are a great way to enjoy family and friends. If you’re looking to put a tasty twist on your next children’s or adult’s Birthday Party, Bridal Shower, Bachelorette Party, Bridal Engagement Party, Anniversary, Rehearsal Dinner, Girl’s or Guy’s Night Out, or a Company Holiday Party–look no further than The Stocked Pot and Company Cooking School.

Here’s How it Works:

When guests arrive, wine and beer is served, appetizers are ready to nosh on and the cooking begins! Our chefs will demonstrate the recipes and techniques then you, your family, and friends join in on the fun. Each of your guests receives commemorative recipes so they can show off their newly learned skills. After the cooking is complete, everyone relaxes and enjoys the delicious food and beverages and chats about the new memories just made!
