Team-building Events and Workshops
Looking for something different for your next group meeting or outing? Cooking is a great way to bring people together AND provide them with some real skills they can take home and use in their own kitchens! We offer a variety of cooking-themed events for groups of 12-24.
In our hands-on events we can accommodate up to 12 in the kitchen at one time. Participants work together to prepare a healthy menu of your choosing. The menu usually consists of 4 courses that the group works to prepare and then everyone sits down to eat and socialize.
During the preparation portion we educate and guide participants in all aspects of the cooking process including knife skills, specific techniques and time saving tips. Since our focus is on whole, real foods everything is made from scratch and we source high quality ingredients including local items, organic and sustainable choices. Nutritional and health information is shared throughout the process.
These events run approximately 2 ½ -3 hours which includes eating and socializing time. Fee includes all ingredients, supplies, instruction, aprons to wear during class, and recipe packet for each participant. (For larger groups (13-24) we can break the group into 2 teams and while one is cooking the other can be doing another non-cooking activity. In the past, these have been charitable based projects including writing notes, creating meals on wheels bags and even packaging spices for local food pantries.) If you wish to include a meeting or planning session as part of the day, that can be arranged (i.e. brainstorming or goal-setting off-site meeting)
A demonstration format is also available and can accommodate up to 24 people. The event would include a discussion of health/wellness topic of your choice along with a full cooking demonstration and sampling of items prepared (think meal portions, not just small samples). These events typically run 1 ½ hours.
