Move over “Iron Chef”. Ultimate Cooking Championship® is here! You get all the thrills of competitive cooking and striving to outshine your opponent, but more than anything, you are the celebrity chefs in your kitchen stadium!
UCC begins with your participants arriving and wondering what what they will be doing for the next few hours. They're handed an apron and asked to wash their hands in preparation. Soon a culinary coach begins the program with a brief but important orientation, that includes safety lessons, basic knife skills and rules on how to win the Ultimate Cooking Championship® game!
The group is then quickly formed into teams, either by our coaches or by you beforehand. Each team chooses a team leader (or “Chef de Cuisine”) and the countdown begins, 3,2,1 Let's COOK!
Each team's chef de cuisine rips open the team's specific instructions to expose the “culinary challenge” of the day. Each team takes 5 minutes to plan their battle, then the cooking begins.
The winning food is judged on the following criteria:
Each team has 1 ½ hours to complete the challenge, oh, and that is without the use of recipes! Guidelines are given, not complete recipes. Teams must rely on each others life skills and experiences to be successful, just like in the real world of business. Also, because there are no recipes to hold you back, teams are allowed to improve upon their creations by roaming the room and bartering for ingredients with other teams, the very people that they are competing against!
At the conclusion of the cooking part of the program, time is called, participants raise up their hands to indicate that cooking is complete. The judges table is presented with a single serving from each team on a decorated plate. The participants are judged both for the small plate presentation as well as the large platter presentation. All of the participants now help themselves to the outcome that they all contributed to, a multi-cultural, gourmet buffet that would make any professional chef proud. But first, you take a moment to admire your creation and to celebrate a successful group effort before enthusiastically consuming the sumptuous feast.
