Our events are highly engaging and immersive, designed to break down hierarchy and barriers while creating fun and unique memories with your team in a social setting.

Welcome to The Cooking Academy, where we transform team building into a unique gastronomic experience, and here’s how we do it:

  • It’s a real ‘MasterChef’ experience where you’re up against the clock and everything to win for.
  • Our events are inclusive for all – because we all need to eat and who doesn’t enjoy great food and wine!
  • Entirely hands-on, no demonstrations or just watching, your team are fully immersed in the kitchen with their sleeves rolled up.
  • You create the entire menu; our chefs are there to keep you safe and give guidance where necessary.
  • You learn and experience real cooking and get some inspiration and life-skills to take away.
  • You all have to work as a team to get the job done – so there’s plenty of camaraderie and team-spirit, which is exactly what team building is about.
  • There’s something very special about the shared experience of cooking and eating together that naturally builds trust, strengthens bonds and encourages open dialogue.
  • The space is exclusive to your group – complete privacy

    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)

    Recruitment & Selection – 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)
