Why this event?


This culinary team building event is perfect for creating a casual ‘let down your hair’ atmosphere. Compared to our other Recipe for Success programs, the Great Appetizer Challenge works well if you’re looking to fill a more limited time slot.

Your group will tour the world by preparing hors d’oeuvres from every corner of the globe. Choose a menu of either hot or cold appetizers, or let us suggest a combination of both.

In typical TeamBonding fashion, participants will face a series of engaging challenges along the way. Communication, collaboration and flexibility are essential parts of this winning recipe. 

Once completed, all of the tempting creations will be showcased on a grand buffet for everyone to share and enjoy. The judges will crown one team champions based on presentation, taste, teamwork and leadership.
