Corporate Food Fight

Private Cooking Lessons

Armed with knives, ingredients and a clock, competitors are separated into two teams competing to produce four dishes in two hours. Menus are selected prior to the event, and each team has a professional chef on standby to answer questions and give advice – but to keep things fair, the chef does not take part in the actual food preparation or cooking. With the menu ingredients, each team chooses either to follow the recipe methods as provided or, for the bold and daring, uses those ingredients to create entirely new dishes to be presented and defended at the end of the class. The winning team earns a trophy and bragging rights.

Whose cuisine will reign supreme?

A minimum of 12 participants is required for this event.

Starting at $75/person*

What Clients Say about

  • Patrick was an amazing asset to our Soup Sisters event at the Cookbook Company. He skillfully and cleverly made his way around the room offering culinary wisdom and excellent advice to about 30 soup making women who had come together to make soup for the Calgary Women's Shelter. Making soup for women and children whose lives haves been affected by domestic abuse and family violence is a cause close to Patrick's heart and he really helped us to create soup made with love guy who gives 100%, and then some!

  • Cooking...Recently, we took a leadership team to Patrick's course and focused on Thai cooking. The team was very pleased to get to know their colleagues while they learned new cooking skills, received some very "do-able" recipes, saw "live" demonstrations and additionally enjoyed a great meal at the end. Patrick and his staff were very friendly, patient and accomodating. We would welcome the opportunity to take part in this team building event again.

  • I have taken two of Patrick's singles cooking classes so far and can't wait to take the next one! Being the wonderful chef and charismatic instructor he is, Patrick has found the perfect ingredients for the "singles" recipe: Toss a group of strangers into a kitchen, add wine, mix altogether, then proceed to create, cook and consume great foods while having good conversations.

  • Cooking...Thanks for helping us put on a great event. We appreciated your help throughout – helping to select a menu, coaching the participants on their food preparation and helping us to be successful with some new and interesting dishes. You created an atmosphere where everyone felt comfortable to experiment with new cooking techniques. At the same time, everyone got to know each other better – one of the goals of our event. Thanks again for a great team building session.

  • "My parents (who are in their 80's) both love Patricks cooking! They are just so happy that they don't have to cook or go shopping for groceries. They both have told me how wonderful it all tastes and how easy it is to "make" dinner now! Thanks so much Patrick for making life a little bit easier for all the family!"

    ‐D Davison

  • One of the best parts in hiring Patrick is that he brings along a helper so I could enjoy my dinner party without having to run in and out of the kitchen and at the end of the night all the dishes were done! Even the wine glasses!   Patrick is a wonderful chef and goes above and beyond expectations in his dinner service. I have used him on 2 occasions (so far … there will be more!)
