Event Outline

Work with our chefs to create perfect Thai inspired dishes, we will use Hartleys own special recipes to get teams working together towards a common goal, we can include a taste test from the chef for extra points counting towards the final score.

To begin our event host will welcome guests and divide the group into teams with each team cooking a starter dish, a main and rice dish and desert using nothing but the freshest ingredients and recipes from our archives. Our expert chef will demonstrate knife handling skills, health and safety and technical aspects of the dishes.Each team will be responsible for organising themselves and delegating tasks, as this is a team activity each set team will be expected to work together to produce the meal with individuals assuming responsibility for their part of the meal, this will include cooking the dishes, table setting, presenting and serving the dishes for each other to encourage team work and bonding within the group.

We also will bring a few additional ingredients in our larder for teams to be creative with awarding. To conclude each team will sit down together to enjoy the fruits of their labour, chef scores team efforts if so desired, judging criteria will be based on the successful recreation of the dishes, taste and time management.
