Short & Sharp Challenges

Our Short & Sharp Challenges encompass all the competition you’d expect from a Social Cooking challenge, then turns up the pressure to maximum! This is fast, frenetic fun at it’s most delicious. Perfect for teams who want a true Social Cooking challenge, but are short on time.

Your group will be split into teams vying for the champions’ title, competing in a culinary challenge that relies on teamwork and creativity. Pretty similar to our other challenges, but you’re in and out in about 2 hours.

Choose from authentic Italian Pizza*, build your most outrageous Burger or try your hand at creating authentic dumplings. Try our Masterchef Risotto Challenge! Or for something a little different, how about a Dessert Challenge. Perfect for a morning or afternoon tea. All Short & Sharp challenges are fun, fast and delicious!

Guests are split into teams, who then choose their fresh ingredients from our pantry of high quality, locally sourced items. With less than an hour to cook, teams will be working hard to create the dish of the day and impress our judges. There can be only one winner!

Optional extras to make your team building event special include:

  • A quick cocktail lesson – unleash your inner mixologist!
  • Wine or craft beer tasting
  • Food and wine quiz

You can also treat your team to platters to start or dessert to finish. Both are created with care by our own chefs, so you can put your feet up and have a well deserved rest. Talk to our sales team about our optional extras when you inquire.

This event is approximately 2 hours in duration. Ingredients can be adapted to suit all dietary requirements. Our team will also take photos of your event, and email them to you the following day. No photos will be published without your permission.

* Pizza is available in Auckland only
