What does the cooking competition involve?
Participants or teams will be given a map with Italian vocabulary, idioms, etc. needed for your shopping spree and to explore the shortest way to our Cooking Academy. You will need to find clues while being guided by our expert Italian chef through the process of shopping for the ingredients before arriving to our Cooking location. Once the teams have arrived, they will prepare and create their very own classic Italian dish in our Cooking Academy overlooking the Tiber River. Our Chef will then sample and rate the best dishes!
Where does it take place?
The game starts in Rome’s famous Campo de’ Fiori market and concludes on the other side of the Tiber River in our beautiful, light and modern Cooking Academy. You'll meet us in the market where you’ll start shopping for the freshest ingredients for the competition menu (within the budget you will be given).
How does the cooking competition work?
After the market experience, you will follow the map to make your way to our Cooking Academy. You will put your apron and your Chef hat on and start cooking like an Italian, under the guidance of our expert chef and against the clock! Create your own strategy: if you spend less time for shopping, you will have more time for cooking!
When the time is up, our chef will sample your dishes and declare the winner. Speed of delivery and faithfulness to the recipe will be taken into account. But also be aware of teamwork and cleanliness, the keys to a successful kitchen.
Do we get to eat our creations?
Oh yes! After the competition you will all sit down and enjoy the food you prepared accompanied by wine and/or soft drinks.
Is there a prize?
Usually the prize is the food you cook, but for larger groups and/or corporate events, prizes can be awarded – contact us to discuss!
