Team Building and Office Escapes

2 hours / Half Day / Full Day 

Although we are often inclined to praise the individual, in reality, very few great accomplishments come as the result one person beavering away in solitude.  In a work situation, collaboration with colleagues working towards a common objective can achieve spectacular and seemingly impossible results.

Teamwork makes the dream work!

A happy team will be motivated, communicate, cooperate, work harder and support each other – creating a flourishing environment in which to drive any business forward to success.

Here at The Cooking School, our tailor-made Team Building courses offer a fun and creative environment which will boost staff morale and increase motivation.  In cooking up a tasty and inspiring feast, your group will incorporate the fundamental qualities of problem solving, sharing ideas, delegation and positive interaction – and have some great food to share together at the end of it!  We can add a competitive edge to the classes, if you wish to reward a winning team at the end!

Suggested themes:

  • Sushi, sashimi and sake – Come along and learn how to make maki and nigiri sushi and sashimi, and enjoy a glass or two of sake or Japanese beer.
  • The Tapas Trail – from traditional tapas to Middle eastern mezze, we rustle up a delicious medley of small plates from around the Mediterranean.
  • Turkish Delights – Prepare and enjoy a selection of delicious regional, traditional and modern dishes from the Bosporus and beyond.
  • Pasta and pizza – Rustle up a selection of Italian favourites, from the perfect pizza to hand made tagliatelle and tortellini, with delicious sauces to complement all.
  • Battle of the Bakes – everyone loves The Great British Bake off, but which team can craft the best classic afternoon tea? Concentration and creativity must combine to craft featherlight scones, stunning macarons and beautiful pastries.

Course options:

  • Weekday or weekend courses
  • Morning, afternoon or evening classes
  • 2 hour classes, half day or full day classes
