The sky really is the limit when it comes to cooking team building activities.  Choose to cook your own three-course meal with our Strictly Come Dining event, let your teams’ creativity take centre stage with the Chocolatiers Apprentice, bake your way to victory with the ever-popular Big Bake, or try your hand at molecular gastronomy with the memorable Molecular Masterclass – it is entirely up to you! The only limit is your imagination.

Get ready for a hands-on team cooking challenge like no other!  Boasting a fully equipped ‘pop up kitchen’, each cooking team building activity is fully mobile.  Teams will be provided with all of the utensils, appliances, and equipment they could need.  Furthermore, professional chefs run each event, providing lots of helpful hints, tips, and tricks of the trade to ensure participants get the most from the day.

As well as being great fun, these corporate cooking events are also very flexible and can last from 90 minutes to 3 hours.  All of these activities are entirely hands-on and are, therefore, extremely engaging.

All of the culinary team building activities we offer and wholly self-contained and don’t require access to any special facilities.   Consequently, all that is needed is a conference or meeting room large enough for your chosen team cooking challenge. Our team provides everything else as part of your event – we even bring a little kitchen sink!

Wherever possible, we will happily tailor your event to reflect any key messages you wish to communicate or your brand.  Similarly, we are happy to accommodate any special dietary requirements or allergies your group may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the team if you would like to discuss a cookery event – we would love to help!

Cooking Team Building Activity FAQ’s

Do you need access to a kitchen for this activity?

No – we provide a fully equipped ‘pop-up’ kitchen as part of the event cost.  This includes everything that the teams will need during their cookery event – from whisks and bowls to scales, mixers, and even a kitchen sink.   This means that your event can be run in pretty much any space including offices, conference rooms, or meeting rooms.

How much space do you require for your cooking team building activities?

This depends on which activity you choose.  We usually ask for a minimum of 3 square metres per person for standard cooking activities, and 4 square metres per person for ‘cook and eat’ activities where people will be sitting down to eat together at the end.  if you are unsure if the space you have is suitable, talk to one of our team.  they would be happy to help.

Can you cater for allergies and special dietary requirements?

Absolutely!  We are very used to accommodating special dietary requirements and there is no additional cost associated with this.  Just let us know which of your guests have special requirements or allergies ahead of your cooking team building activity and we will ensure they are catered for.

Are you able to provide branded aprons as part of the event?

We provide aprons and chefs hats for all participants as part of the event cost but if you would like to provide everyone with a branded apron that they can take home after the event, we can certainly arrange this for you.  Costs do vary depending upon the quantity, and our team would be happy to advise you on this.

Who will run my cooking team building activity?

Each of our cooking team building activities is run by an experienced, professional chef so you are in safe hands.  Your ‘head chef’ will be ably assisted by an event crew who will ensure everything runs smoothly and everyone has a great time.

Can we eat the things that we cook at the end of our team cooking challenge?

Everything you make during your event is yours to keep.  During our cook and eat activities such as the Molecular Masterclass and Strictly Come Dining, participants will eat the food they create as they go and so these options are great to run at lunchtime or in the evening.  Everything made during non ‘cook and eat’ activities such as The Big Bake and Chocolatiers Apprentice can be packaged up and taken home or back to the office.
