Team FOOD FEST

Team FOOD FEST will see teams battle it out to see whose Street Stall will reign supreme.

Imagine the most amazing Street Food, prepared by your team, from a very basic recipe (open to team interpretation & personal flair). We fill the Larder with amazing produce, spices & wonder products, so that teams can work like machines to feed the masses.

Not everyone loves to cook, so, teams must also build the most amazing Food Stalls to sell their goodies from. We provide plenty of building materials, tools, props and handy hints to ensure each stall looks enticing and eye catching.

Not into cooking or DIY? Marketing and Sales are also key skills to help WOW the judges, and the other teams. Why do we want to chow down with your noodles or tangle with your tacos?

Loads of banter, fun & laughs are guaranteed as we find out whose team cuisine will reign supreme.
