Are you looking for a fun, creative and exciting event for your team, group of friends or someone’s birthday? Then come to this Asian MasterChef Cooking Challenge!
Choose one of the menus from our selection of Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian or Indian options and we will teach you how to cook these favorite Asian Cuisines! The day / evening will start by dividing your group into smaller teams, with a tasting challenge and quiz about the country (cuisine) that you have chosen.
Then our authentic chef will demonstrate 3 dishes (some of our other competitors only do 1 dish but we believe in sending you home full)! that you are going to cook as a team, before we put you back onto the cooking station to hit the pressure of a 45 minutes of cooking challenge. It’s now your time to show off your skills and hidden ability to your team mates!
Sounds very serious?? – don’t worry, we just want you to have fun and create delicious meals for your colleagues and friends! We will be there to help and assist you all the way through! At the end of the 45mins, just like your favourite TV shows, we will judge your meals based on tidiness of your work station, team work, creativity, presentation skills (little speech from team is always good one to hear) and taste.
Now you can relax and enjoy the rest of the day / evening with your team over a glass of wine or nice cold beer! and the enjoy the sumptuous meal that you have just created. We will announce the winner at the end of the event!

After the short cooking demonstration, each team will receive an envelope with instructions and “pocket” money. A taxi will be waiting for you outside and the winning team of the initial challenge will depart first (just like in the Amazing Race). We will provide ingredients for 3 Asian dishes with recipes, but it will be up to your team to decide what to get for your dessert challenge – you will have one hour to rush to the local supermarkets to source all the ingredients and complete tasks before you return to Sachie’s Kitchen.
Once you have returned to the school, the cooking challenge begins! You will have one hour to cook your Asian dishes and the dessert of your choice. Our chef will judge your dishes based on presentation, creativeness, team work, and taste of all the dishes (of course)!
