Corporate Team Building
Meeting your specific needs and company attitude, Corporate Team Building events create an environment that promotes creativity, communication and cooperation among participants, allowing them to relate in ways not possible in the office. In addition, to successfully transfer the essential elements of teamwork from the workplace into our kitchen, each team is called upon to use collaboration, commitment, goal orientation and leadership.
A typical Culinary Corporate Team Building experience is as follows:
Before the event, background information, such as meeting themes and buzzwords, is obtained so the team-building experience can be customized for your group
Upon arrival, our staff will greet your group and introduce you to Chef John.
To start off the event, your group will toast with a sparkling wine and enjoy Parmigiano popovers, while discussing the night’s menu.
The group is then broken into teams, each receiving a recipe for their assigned course, a chef hat and an apron.
Next, Chef John will lead a group lesson in basic techniques used in the preparation of the event’s dishes, as well as in safety and sanitation.
Then the fun begins, as each team begins to prepare their course under the guidance of Chef John and the staff.
Let’s Eat! Once the cooking is complete, the group will then join together for the fine dining portion of the event. Each team will plate their course and help serve their fellow co-workers. In addition, Chef John is available in helping teams choose a wine to pair with their course. Once dining is complete, Chef John provides everyone with a packet of the night’s recipes so that each dish can be recreated at home.
Total Event Time: About four hours.
