Master your cooking skills with Italian-inspired pasta and pizza workshops. After being introduced to the event and after a short demonstration by the chef, guests take place at their workstations and get their hands deep in some dough to begin the pasta and pizza making challenge.

The event commences with Chef briefing the teams  - the challenge to create two or three restaurant quality courses, that will need a written menu and be presented to the Chef to judge on taste, presentation, and creative use of ingredients. Each team is given a cash budget to buy produce from the market, all against the clock of course. Teams will need to research their menus to identify the right suppliers in the market.
