Hands- On Cooking

Get the whole team working collaboratively together and allow individuals to step up or help others without formal delegation or leadership roles. This creates an opportunity for self expression and an inclusive and level playing field for everyone to connect.

Fun Competition

Hands-on Cooking

Nothing like a bit of fun competition to encourage camaraderie and team spirit. Let us introduce you to some of our food fun challenges during the class.

Leadership Challenge

Hands-on Cooking

Want to try out new leaders or strengthen leadership qualities. You can delegate team leaders for your team day and we will give them additional responsibilities and roles for the day to challenge their leadership styles.

Small Team Work

Hands-on Cooking

Small team work is very effective at building new connections, breaking down personal barriers and strengthening cross departmental communication. We can format your class into multiple smaller groups who cook and eat together as a team.

Large Class Format

Hands-on Cooking

For larger classes over 30 people we can operate tag- team cooking challenges or have delegation into task/cooking areas and teams. We can use our indoor and outdoor spaces and have buffet style dining for mix and mingle opportunities.

Dinner and Cooking Demo

Sit back, Watch and Dine with Wine

Want to treat your team to a social event and have them entertained? They can sit back and relax, but rub shoulders with the chef and dine in our private restaurant. This format is a perfect option for rewarding your team and offers progressive cooking demonstrations and dining courses throughout the session. We can add wine tasting, wine matching and wine education into the event by request.
