Uncover the history of pasta with your team and learn the secrets of the most classic pasta and sauce recipes in this hands-on team building experience. Groups collaborate through teamwork and communication to make a dish so good it’s pre-pasta-rous!
Make Fresh Pasta from Scratch!
In Pasta Palooza, everyone goes home excited about their new culinary skill, and team building experience. Participants not only learn the history of pasta, but they also will learn the best tips and tricks to making fresh pasta from scratch while fostering new connections.
With guidance and fun ice-breakers, participants will gather in groups to prepare pasta dough from scratch using the old fashion “well method” and other techniques to make the perfect pasta. Teams will be fully equipped with all the necessary ingredients and tools that they will need to roll out their dough into sheets. Once their dough is made, teams will use a variety of pasta cutters to cut their sheets into 3 different shapes for cooking. They then start creating the sauces, pairing each pasta type with its own unique, delectable sauce. Nothing compares to the taste and texture of freshly made pasta, and enough pasta will be made so that everyone on the team will be able to taste.
Experience all the pastabilities of learning a new cooking skill together!
Our culinary program director will contact your venue of choice to handle all details of room layout and set-up.

A competition factor can be added, where the facilitators will act as the judges and score on each team’s pasta creations on execution, taste, and creativity.
We had a great time and I received a lot of positive feedback from the team. They were surprised, had fun and enjoyed participating in multiple activities. Michael was amazing!
Amazing! The event was a HUGE success! Everything was perfect – the participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I can’t say enough about how well it went. The word is already flying around the office about the success of the program and we already have another group thinking about using this program for an event of their own!
The hunt was a huge success!! Even this skeptical crowd of mobile app building designers and engineers were pleasantly surprised with the very cool smartphone application and everyone had a really great time! Michael and his team did a terrific job facilitating and the whole event went very smoothly.
The feedback has been nothing but positive. I received several unsolicited comments from many people who could not say enough great things about the program and the facilitators. It was definitely a success!
