Choose from three different cooking battle themes:
Team Relay – Chef Tre provides the protein option(s) and 5 ingredients. Teams have access to the pantry staples. Each team is provided 30 minutes. Without using Google, each team will cook their two dishes using teamwork AND all 5 of the additional ingredients. The teams of 7 -8 people will be divided into groups of 3-4 people. After 15 minutes of cooking, the teams will switch and the second group will finish the dishes. When time is up, the teams will present their dishes to the special judges.
Dishes are judged on creativity, taste and presentation. Then there are the “tres” cool points – extra credit for going above and beyond.
The winning team gets a culinary-inspired grand prize and goes back to the office with bragging rights.
Market Basket Challenge – A basket containing who knows what put teams’ creativity to the test. This is Chopped, but Tre Wilcox style. Contestants have 45 minutes to turn clashing ingredients into one edible dish. Celebrity guest judges rank team dishes on how well the ingredients were incorporated, creativity, taste and presentation. Plus, the “tres” cool points – extra credit for any wow factor.
The winning team gets a culinary-inspired grand prize and the rest get chopped.
Family Dinner – If competing with knives in hand isn’t your group’s thing, there’s the Family Dinner team building option. No competition. Just a low-key event that ends with everyone sitting down together for a meal, family dinner style. Each team is responsible for making one course of the meal. No judging. No pressure.
Family Dinners have a theme, could be anything from New York Steak House to New Orleans Cajun Feast. Two menu styles are offered: a chef-crafted buffet of choice or a 3-course plated dinner.
Everyone is a winner and everyone goes back to the office with a full belly.
