Wine, Cheese, Cured meats and Chocolate

This year HCG will partner up with the cheese, cured meat, wine and chocolate makers to introduce a brand new program for fun corporate events. We are combining the four beloved ingredients and purveyors to give you an unforgettable educational and gastronomic experience.

Tapas and Verrines parties

Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers or finger food commonly served in bars in Spain that are meant to share with good friends and a good glass of wine! Verrines in French mean Jars or votives and are finger food served in small jars just like tapas. In a team competition format, each team will prepare hot and cold tapas for the judges to taste. Ingredients and recipes are provided.  Bibi has worked as a high level executive at many companies, has hired and led many team-building activities so she knows how to foster communication and encourage team building. Teams are judged by taste, presentation and teamwork, and of course they end by feasting on what they have created.

Pizza Truck Parties

For the last 9 years we have been asked if we can go to someone’s house and throw a party.  This has always been a challenge but now we are partnering with the champion pizzaiolo of Europe and his truck and are bringing a piece of HCG to your home and guests.

Iron Chef-style group cooking competition

This is a fast-paced team building activity where guests are divided into two teams and face off in a timed culinary competition. Bibi and the Staff of HCG are the culinary coaches whereas teams are challenged to create delicious dishes from scratch. When the clock runs out, each team presents their creation to the judge and then enjoys the feast they created. Teams are judged on presentation, taste and teamwork.

Sip and Stir

Inspired by Bibi’s gastronomic travels and her sold-out first cookbook – The Spice Whisperer, this format is composed with fresh ingredients and exciting culinary techniques to prepare a three course meal in her three different kitchens. Bibi and her staff will provide hands-on instructions and introduction to the mis-en place to support your group in the preparation of a three-course meal.
