One of my ex-colleague, Veronia Chin suggested to her team at UOB Bank to do something "different" for a change. She was referring to their annual department team building activity. So, she gave our contact to her colleagues, Mimi and Benjamin, who were organising their department's team building event this year.
The organisers wanted to do a departmental cook off a la master chef and have a little cooking competition amongst themselves. They came to us to rent our kitchen studio and have lunch too. We discussed their needs. They came to recce our kitchen studio and the date was set.
Everyone arrived huff and puff with grocery shopping bags from their morning marketing. After the morning welcome and some administrative rules, the cook-off began. There was cutting, grinding, scooping, frying, boiling, washing, talking and laughing along the way.
After 3 hours of gruelling cooking, the dishes were finally completed by the teams and judging began. Winners were announced and it was time to sit down and eat their hard earned lunch. Everyone had great fun.
