Breakfast at the hotel.
Participation in independent preparation of a traditional national dish - Samarkand pilaf.

Depending on the number of people, we break into mini groups of several people. Participants go to the market, with a list of necessary products, to buy food. In this case, the ability to bargain in the Eastern style will be taken into account.
After purchasing, they return to the national house (where team building will take place) to prepare pilaf. Pilaf is also prepared in mini groups; the cook will monitor their action and also give recommendations on preparation.
At the end of cooking, the teams exchange their pilafs and evaluate the culinary work of their competitors.
Thus, tourists will learn how to cook pilaf, buy food at the market (make a bazaar according to the Eastern tradition), get to know each other better, and unite as a team.
