What people say.

I would just like to thank you all again for such a fantastic experience, it was incredibly educational and certainly gave me some food for thought (excuse the pun!) The afternoon was so very well thought out and delivered, everyone was so friendly, helpful * patient and I’m really looking forward to putting some of the recipes and techniques into practice

Thanks again! (Nicky- KARL STORZ)

Thanks so much for sharing the recipes it was a fantastic event – everyone loved it thank you! Your entire team were great they looked after us so well and did such a good job – the food was delicious and under their guidance we were amazed at being able to produce such great dishes in such a short time. It was good fun, real team building experience with healthy competition and great feedback from the chefs.

Thank you we’ve already been recommending it around the office here at Dentons!

Thanks for all your help in organising this and please pass on our thanks to the chefs. I will certainly be happy to do a review. (Sally-DENTONS )

Thank you very much for providing such a lovely experience. We really enjoyed it, and posted a blog on our website where we mention you guys: Fun with Blue Car at The Cooking Academy! 

Everyone had such a great time and are still talking about it a week later – I thought the food tasted delicious and so much lighter and healthier than what you get in restaurants. Thank you for inspiring us and coaching our team. (Ilaria – Blue Car technology)

I had a really great time taking part and the food was just divine! The uber “healthy” recipes I’ve tried in the past have been somewhat uninspiring, but Kumud’s packed in so much flavour. And she did such a great job at explaining why the ingredients are important and what they do for us. 10 out of 10 afternoon, thank you!  (Kate -Karl Storz)

“This was a very novel experience that makes an interesting talking point with clients – very different to the usual team building events, highly informative, exciting and great differentiator” (Richard Parry – Barclays)

Barclays Team building – Cookery Event

“I have to say the team really enjoyed the day off and generally are of the opinion that it was the best retreat event we have had so far! It was perfect for us, very interactive with
clear goals and timelines and of course the pay off of lovely food.”  (Bren Vaughan – EBI)


EBI – Employee Wellbeing Programme

Our cookery event was designed to improve inter-team relationships and encourage colleagues to get to know each other outside of the workspace since happy employees mean happy customers – and growing revenues.  Our objectives were met 100%, exceeding everyone’s expectations for the day, The teams had great fun and most importantly, took something away for themselves, and they have talked about the day since so we’ve created shared memories.   There was good wine and plenty of banter and jokes, it was highly sociable.  And for me, the best part of the day was “watching the whole team putting their effort into the cooking and enjoying themselves.” (Thomas Schneider  – Concur Technologies)

What an amazing day we all had…it has been the topic of conversation today and the photos have been flying around the office!  It has had the desired effect on the teams here so we are delighted with the outcome.     Thank you all for your most professional help not only before we arrived but during our event too.    (Dawn Lipman – Full Power Utilities)

“The cookery event has helped me reflect on the importance of teamwork – there was a great team spirit throughout the day, and it has also taught me how food doesn’t just fill you up but is also part of your lifestyle. The whole day was first class – one of the best corporate days experienced.” (Mark Williams – Three UK)

“Thanks you for a really great team building event today. The whole day exceeded my expectations, starting with the degree of knowledge and skills developed as a team, level of engagement and, most of all, fun! We’ve all let our hair down in a professional way and got to know each other. This is the best team event we’ve done and certainly won’t be the last.” (David Grays, Oracle Finance)

“Both personally and professionally it exceeded my expectations from what I thought could be my development & Reward programme. The day was a fantastic introduction to Indian cookery and a bonus being in such a relaxed and lovely environment.” (Lindy Butters, De Vere Venues)
