Corporate Shopping and Cooking Challenge


Your teams will shop, prep, cook and face the judges before sitting down to their amazing creation with a glasses or two of Bent Creek wine, one of SA’s best. Your team will learn how to cook 3 signature dishes, entrée, main and dessert, from our Amazing Chefs. You will also learn how to select the best fresh produce - with an emphasis on South Australian produce.


Each team will be given a recipe and will then be required to race into the supermarket and fresh market stores and shop for their ingredients.


What happens during the Corporate Shopping and Cooking Challenge team building activity?


Simply pick a day or night that suits your team (allow 3 hours shopping, cooking and eating). Then pick from one of our 5 cuisines.

  • European
  • Asian
  • Vegetarian/Vegan
  • Middle Eastern or
  • French

We will then design the menu with your input or you can leave it up to the chef.


Your team will put their chef’s hats and aprons on, select 3 captains, each captain will then pick their team, one team will cook the entrée, one the main and one the dessert. Your team will then shop, arrive back at our kitchen/cooking school (for up to 14 participants). If your group is larger than this we can also arrange a venue to host your event (we are fully mobile so don’t stress if you don’t have a kitchen).


Extra points will be awarded to the team that finds the South Australian made or grown produce on the recipe. Each team needs to judge the pace of the cook to make sure the entire meal is ready to eat as it would be in a top restaurant.


The judges will rate the 3 dishes for taste, presentation and timing. The team with the most points will win the red chef’s hat and apron and take away the premium South Australian wine selection. Once all the cooking is done it is time to sit back relax and enjoy your team's creation, recount all the highlights over a glass or two.
