-What do you want to eat?
-What do I have to prepare for tonight’s meal?
– Do I even have the proper ingredients?
None of the above daily struggles would be applicable tonight.
During this years’ end of the summer team event, we spiced it up, literally.
Keeping in mind there are few things more fulfilling than a well-prepared meal after a long day of work, we unveiled the inner chef in ourselves throughout a highly competitive cooking class.
At first, we were divided into two teams, each with another assignment.
The yellow team started with a culinary quiz, during which the advantages of having an international team became immediately clear.
Although the answer to the question: “Where did they serve the first meal of Chili Con Carne?” remains pretty unclear. (Not only to us, but also on the worldwide web apparently).
While this debate was going on, the red team started with the preparations for our main dish and we switched activities afterwards.
After taken care of the main dish, we still had to prepare our chocolate brownie dessert (or something that resembles it). This implied, manually whipping cream, which is not the easiest thing to do (video below).

Competitors as we all are, every team wanted to win of course. But, not only did we battle against the other team, in the end, it was also in each of our own interest to try our best as we would (have to) eat our own creation all together afterwards.
As far as we know, none of the participants called in sick today – wine was at own risk- so we might conclude we succeeded in our mission. 🙂
