Timed Pasta-making Team Building Cooking Competition

Hungry for a new style of team building activity? Try our new pasta recipe for building teamwork in the heat of the kitchen. Get fired up with your colleagues at this 3-hour, fast-paced kitchen competition brimming with culinary adventure and fun.

How the Pasta Wars team building activity works

  • Your team is greeted with soft beverages and a complimentary appetizer.
  • Guests are divided into teams and face-off in a timed pasta-making competition. With our professional chefs as culinary coaches, each team strategizes together to create a pasta masterpiece using a basic pasta dough recipe and a pantry full of ingredients to create a scratch-made sauce.
  • Whether the pasta is filled, layered, or cut into long ribbons, each team is challenged to come up with their own delicious pasta shape and accompanying sauce. Creativity, division of tasks and effective communication within each team are critical for the win.
  • Members of the team that dishes up the best pasta making meal win prizes based on presentation, teamwork, and taste. The result? A sit-down meal garnished with camaraderie and served with a side of competitive edge.
  • One week after your event, you will receive a keepsake: the recipes and group photo to share with your team!
