Come Dine with Us

There is a show in England called “Come Dine With Us” that shows four strangers meeting for the first time to compete in a dinner “cook-off.”  Each participant plans and coordinates a dinner event for the other three guests, including the cooking of the meal, hosting that evening and selecting entertainment for the night.  While we don’t ask groups to plan an entire evening for each other, our Ready Steady Cook Challenge does require groups to create an appetizer and main entrée course to be tasted and judged by one of our Fearrington House chefs.  This activity has proven to be a friendly competition and guest favorite time and time again!  From groups bringing their own designed chef hats and aprons to comical consolation prizes, each planner can decide how creative they want to make the team building activity.  After a winner is announced the group is then treated to either a lunch or dinner from one of our restaurants, where we then cater to you!  A perfect balance of “work” and “play!”
