Team Building

Our highly-engaging and immersive cooking events are designed to break down hierarchy and barriers while fostering competitive team spirit.

Effective team building activities are compatible for:

  • Improving morale.
  • Enhancing communication and teamwork.
  • Fostering trust among colleagues.

Many traditional activities like paintball or rope courses can create a competitive but isolating environment that detracts from the primary purpose for those less able to partake.

We add a fun and friendly competitive flavour to our cookery events.
Our challenges pitch teams against one another to prepare and serve the best 3-course meal to a five-star standard. All of this is taught, supervised, and judged by our highly experienced Chefs, food scientists and nutritionists.

Our events are entirely hands-on (strictly no demonstrations) cookery to stir up competitive team spirit with

  • Ready, Set, Cook.
  • Sushi & Salsa.
  • Hunger games.
  • Team Bake Off.

Why choose cooking as your team building event of choice?

Cooking is a unique activity that typically takes place in personal settings with family or loved ones, evoking a sense of home life and breaking down professional barriers for effective team collaboration.

Unlike many other team building activities, cooking is inclusive and accessible for everyone, regardless of physical ability. It fosters a positive and supportive atmosphere that promotes practical skills and hands-on experience for recreating healthy and delicious meals at home.

Our events can run from 2-3hours, full evening or the whole day. They are fully flexible and built around your needs.

A dedicated Event Manager will be on hand working with you to create a bespoke event to ensure it runs seamlessly from start to finish.

Our typical event includes:

  • Welcome with arrival drinks and canapes.
  • Engaging introduction to the event.
  • Team challenge and menu assessment – get into teams.
  • ‘Ready Set Cook’ – 75 minutes of cooking to complete the challenge.
  • Sit down and enjoy your meal with drinks while the dishes are being judged.
  • End the event with a prize giving ceremony to the winning team

Our events are entirely managed by our team of chefs and event managers; we provide all necessary equipment, ingredients and even a mobile kitchen where required, so all you need to do is turn up and enjoy the day.

What people say.

“I learnt a lot about people I thought I knew quite well. Cooking is very nurturing and similar to managing people.” (Eric Pedersen – Bra Boehringer-Ingleheim)

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)

“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)
