You and your group will go head to head to produce a Christmas dinner for you and your colleagues to judge and enjoy. We will teach the group an alternative option to the traditional roast turkey, we will begin with a demonstration on how to bone a Turkey crown then make individual stuffed ballotines which are poached and pan fried, your team can expect to learn some new skills and have great fun on this fascinating festive cookery activity.
The group will be split in teams with each team cooking for the opposing team, an expert chef will demonstrate knife handling skills and go through health and safety and give an inspiring cookery demonstration.
Each team will be responsible for all aspects of their dishes and will include decorating and table setting as well as serving their hungry colleagues.
Each team gives an overall score of the dishes, giving feedback via a spokesperson on the table, and then the winner from each category goes before our judges to give the final verdict, the criteria the chefs will be looking for are creativity, team work and taste.
