Team Building Events

Claremont Chefs Academy offers culinary team building programs that will offer the challenge to create recipes together in a hands-on format. Our programs are held in either a structured format following established recipes or in an “Iron Chef” format where the group will create their own. Everyone will be involved in the preparation of the meal and they will enjoy the meal at the end of class.

Structured Team Building

In this class, the team will work together following recipes to create a delicious meal for everyone to enjoy.
All classes will involve:
-Cooking, cutting, measuring, and plating
-Help by a professional chef to guide them and answer questions
-Recipes given to make notes and follow

-2.5 hours hands-on cooking

-Everyone eats what was made (Note: All food must be eaten here, we are not allowed to send anything home per the Health Department)

“Chopped” or "Iron Chef" Team Building

This class is designed for a true culinary competition. Using our 2 kitchens, teams will be divided into 2 groups and they will each create their own unique recipes with the guidance of their own dedicated chef.
All classes will involve:
-2 teams that must battle for the “main” ingredients including a starch, meat, vegetable, and dessert item
-dedicated chefs helping to guide each team
-a selection of mutual ingredients to choose from

-2.5 hours of hands-on cooking and creating! 

-each team will be judged in taste and presentation by a local chef from our neighboring restaurant chefs (if available)

-Everyone eats what was made (Note: All food must be eaten here, we are not allowed to send anything home per the Health Department)

Cost starts at $65 per person with a 10 person minimum/ 30 max
