Mystery Box Challenge

As seen on TV ... is your team up for a challenge?

Following a quick presentation by Chef (where no recipes are given), teams must go on to design, create, cook and present for judging their own recipes from the Mystery Box bench ingredients. Chef will be on hand to provide culinary advice (without giving too much away).

Your chef will also judge the groups to gauge the ultimate Mystery Box challenge winning team. Be prepared for high energy and lots of competitive fun!

Food & Wine Matching

A Look, Cook and Eat class with the added value of Food and Wine matching.

Along with your one hour cooking demonstration you will also spend time with a local wine expert from Babich Wines who will discuss the best wine match for the recipes you will be cooking as well as premium matches for other food flavours.

Celebrity Chef Classes

A Look, Cook and Eat class with a guest chef, to “gold class” your experience.

Since inception the Seafood School has enjoyed a strong relationship with some of New Zealand’s wonderfully talented chefs such as Ray McVinnie, Simon Gault, Annabel Langbein, Julie le Clerc, Peta Mathias, Michael Meredith, Nici Wickes, Geoff Scott, Mark Southon and Brett McGregor.

Plenty of interaction throughout the experience – the best team will be judged by New Zealand's finest.

Cooking Commandos Challenge

A “Conartists” event - can you prepare a culinary masterpiece in time and on budget?

The group is divided into cooking teams. Following a cooking demonstration, teams go on to purchase ingredients (with fish dollars), create and cook their own adaptation of the recipes which will be judged by Coach Commando and your chef. Teams then sit down to enjoy their meal and prizes are presented.

Culinary Team Building: Food Olympics

A “Conartists” event - Team building that combines food and sporting events.

The guests are led by Coach Bourguignon, a foremost trainer of Master Chef competitions. Interspersed with the usual Look, Cook, Eat hands on cooking class are vigorous and fun filled challenges like 'Separate the Yolk' and 'Toss that Fish' that will pit your food athletes against one another.
