Experience the festive flavors of Mexico!

Our legendary salsa showdown cooking competition combines creativity with culinary skill as teams work together to win over the judges. In this cooking team building activity, each group has its own table with pot, spoons, knives, cutting boards, aprons, markers, and utensils. They must work against the clock – and each other – to create the perfect salsa, then market it to the rest of the crowd.

The atmosphere is fun and festive, with Latin music setting the tone from the first moment your group arrives. In the center of the room, we set up a spice table and vegetable marketplace. In the spirit of good-natured competition, teams create team chants and design aprons that showcase their new salsa brands. A hilarious judging round wraps up the whole enchilada. Prizes are awarded for creativity, presentation, and taste. 

*For extra excitement, add a Wine Tasting Team Building Challenge to this event. This gives teams the chance to make refreshing Sangria – the perfect compliment to chips and salsa.
