Fiesta Fling is a lively event where your group will experience the sights, sounds and flavors of Mexico!
Group Size: 25 to 1,000+
Team Size: 8 to 10
Program Length: 1.0 to 2 hours
In this exciting recipe contest, your teams will make their own brand of Salsa, Guacamole and Golden Margaritas (or Sangria)!
Themed décor and the beat of Mexican music will set the stage for this gastronomical team builder which combines creativity with culinary skill and a few surprises, too! Each team will have a designated table equipped with all the required utensils and will “shop our Mexican Marketplace” to select ingredients to make their recipes unique.
After selecting a team captain, teams will compete in some fun challenges (COYOTE CALL, TORTILLA TOSS and a fun TRIVIA CHALLENGE). The team with the highest score receives special decorating materials.
Teams now create and prepare Salsa, Guacamole and Margaritas, develop a team name, design a team logo and write a “chant” to market their creation – all within the allotted amount of time.
Once the preparations are completed, the culinary capers begin! Each team will perform their chant and present their creations to the judges.
Teams will be judged on creativity, presentation and taste. All winning team members will receive medals for their culinary masterpieces.
