Our Experiences

Here are some details of our experiences offered here at Social Cooking. These follow a consistent format. If you don’t see an experience that suits you, please ask our team for other ideas. We can adapt any event to suit you and your group.

All our shows can accommodate dietary and allergy requirements. Our sales team will ask for dietary specifications prior to your event.

Masterchef Challenges

Masterchef Challenge is our most popular format. Fast-paced and fully interactive, you’ll be part of a team tasked with creating an amazing dish that you’ll put forward to our expert chef for judging. To celebrate all your team’s hard work, the whole group will sit down for a fantastic dining experience and enjoy the fruits of their labour! A true staple of the Social Cooking experience.

Food Olympics

Food Olympics is our biggest and most competitive format. The group is split into teams vying for the champions’ title, competing in a series of culinary challenges that rely on teamwork and creativity. It’s our ultimate team building experience! This format includes 4 activities of your choosing, from interactive Cocktail making, Gourmet Italian Pizza or BBQ Burgers, Bowls & Darts, Taste Vietnam, and WOW (World of Wearable Arts) pavlova decorating challenge.

Recipe Challenge

For teams that want a little bit of guidance, our Recipe Challenge could be just the thing you need. Start by choosing one from a range of delicious recipes from around the world, then race against the competition to pick out your ingredients from the pantry. Teams compete against the clock and each other to create a culinary masterpiece, then come back together to share a drink or two, relax, and enjoy the amazing meal they’ve worked so hard to produce.

Cook for Families in Need

Join MasterchefNZ finalist, Vanessa Baxter, and cook for families at Ronald McDonald House. Vanessa will guide you and your teams through the process of producing delicious, nutritious family-friendly meals. These will be packaged and delivered to feed the families of unwell children at Ronald McDonald House. Your team will bond over this cooking challenge, while giving back to a very worthwhile charity.
