The Chili Challenge

  • Length of Time – 2-3 hours
  • Group Size – 10 - ?
  • Location – Any room or outdoor location large enough to hold your group and our cooking equipment.

How It Works

Upon arrival, your guests are welcomed with soft drinks and hors d’oeuvres. This first half hour provides your guests with the opportunity to mingle, meet their chef coaches and peruse the supply of fresh ingredients they will be working with. Cooking stations have been pre-set with all of the kitchen equipment and utensils needed to create their dishes.

Once all of your guests have arrived and are settled, your Moose & Goose Head Chef Coach provides a short presentation on basic safety skills, sanitation and proper food handling. Then, each person participating receives an apron and hand towel. Your group is broken up into teams. Teams have 5 minutes to select a team leader, team name and team sound.

Now comes the fun part. Each team needs to create the best dang chili known to mankind. A variety of ingredients are provided and each team has 10 minutes to decide which to use. We’ll let them cheat a little by giving them some chili recipes to follow in case they don’t have a clue. Teams have 1 hour to complete their task. They must also prepare enough of their dish to feed their team as well as each judge.

Now it’s time to chow down! Food is plated by each team. Iced Tea, Lemonade and Bottled water is provided by Moose & Goose Picnic Catering. During this time, judges will assess the dishes presented. After everyone has had their fill, the judging begins. Dishes are judged on Taste, Creativity, Food Station Cleanliness, Sales Presentation.
Each group presents their dish to the judges including their team name, sound, what they learned from this activity and a compelling reason why their team should earn the title of TOP CHILI CHEFS!

Your Moose & Goose Chef Coach provides feedback on each group’s success and performance as well as highlighting valuable lessons that can be used back in the work place.
Judges then score each team in the 4 categories above
The winner is announced and receives an award certificate naming that team TOP CHILI CHEFS for the season.
