Why Choose a Cookery Event?
Our cookery team building events are run by professional chefs where we pitch teams against each other to cook a number of dishes within a time frame. Delegates learn to master a new cuisine whilst at the same time practicing their teamwork, organisation and leadership skills!
The language of food is universal and offers a level playing-field for those involved which breaks down barriers between colleagues from all levels of your organisation, everyone is relaxed, has fun and gets to enjoy the fruits of their labour at the end of the challenge.
A cookery team building event lasts for approximately 2-3 hours or longer, with additional cookery and food related activities and icebreakers. We offer a wide range of exciting cuisines to choose from. The timings of your event are flexible and can take place during the day or the evening. Read on below for a typical itinerary and menu choice.
