John Deere and ShareThis Get Creative with Parties That Cook’s Amazing Kitchen Race and Cupcake Wars

At Parties That Cook we hate making anyone feel forgotten. That being said, I think it’s time we featured a couple of our newer Corporate Team Building Events

On Thursday, August 18th, John Deere hosted their first cooking event with Parties That Cook – and boy was it exciting! Not only did they get to experience a heated cooking competition, but the company took their team building a step further by selecting our Amazing Kitchen Race! According to the John Deere host, Sarah N., “It seemed like something different and something that would really get everyone working as a team.”

Teams took to the streets of Chicago to compete in a GPS scavenger hunt, earning points (called cache) to redeem for advantages in the kitchen. They then returned to the Charlie Baggs kitchen to finish the evening with the usual Kitchen Challenge portion of the event.

We were so glad to hear that our FIRST Amazing Kitchen Race in Chicago went off without a hitch! Communication with our partners at Geoteaming definitely contributed to a smooth competition. PTC’s Chef Molly reported, “The client was raving about the entire event and loved everything – both cooking and geoteaming.” John Deere’s host, Sarah N., added that the best part was seeing “everyone get so into the cooking and really working as a team.” Success!

The very next day, ShareThis hosted a Cupcake Wars event at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. PTC Chef Linda shared that the guests all had a great time! Being a judge must have been tough, as she loved how great each of the final products tasted.

ShareThis host, Olivia T., loved seeing everyone work together as a team, and she was impressed by all the brainstorming ideas. This must have been a particularly creative group, as Chef Linda also noted how creative the cupcakes were! Chef Linda explained, “Interestingly, guests made their decorations from fresh produce – berries, citrus, etc. No one touched the coloring, jimmies or confetti!” Great to see everyone stepping out of the box!

If you would like to see your event featured in one of our Event Blogs, just let us know!
Hope to see you in the kitchen soon!
