Introduction to Cooking Competition Teambuilding Cambodia
Are you looking for a team-building activity to include in your corporate staff party during Siem Reap team-building day?
Cooking competitions are a great way to engage your workforce or business partners, whether you are a MICE group traveling to Siem Reap or a company with a headquarters there.
The process of customizing includes choosing the type of cuisine, the number of courses, the location, and the time frame for your event.
Participants are divided into teams for Khmer Cooking, and each team is given a cooking station, cooking tools, and ingredients.
A professional chef who received the most votes will invite the winner to witness their cooking show, in which they will show how to prepare each course.
This cook leader/future chef will guide their group in making the food as accurately as possible.
Drama and show are used to convey the judges’ tasting and voting processes. Only foods that are sufficiently authentic, tasty, and attractively presented to satisfy the judges are given points.
The winning team, which will get a prize, is the one with the most points at the conclusion of the competition.
Turn from being a kitchen cook to an excellent chef by learning the secrets and methods of Khmer cuisine from a professional.
Teams are taught the techniques and recipes for making the world-famous Khmer food by skilled cooks and chefs in a real restaurant setting.
Participants learn how to gather the necessary ingredients, produce paste and sauces, cook each meal to absolute perfection, and then plate it. Each team must cooperate to learn how to duplicate the dish, plate it, and present it for evaluation by the experts.
Teams are evaluated on their use of flavor, presentation, technique, and cleanliness. A few dishes are included in this half-day cooks and chefs team-building activity in Siem Reap, which can be added to a business lunch or dinner.
