TEAM BUILDING & COOKING EVENTS...
All of our team cooking events and challenges are facilitated by our team of professional chefs and event hosts. Where needed, our Learning & Development experts will work with you to evaluate and improve performance and interpersonal team dynamics.

All the fun, team working and delicious food created with The Gourmet Challenge programmes, but with the added, important benefit of a healthy menu and specific strategies for healthy eating at work.
The Gourmet Challenge goes into the wild! Forage for your ingredients, build your outdoor kitchen & dining "room", make fire, purify water, work as a team to survive the culinary wilds with a gourmet meal - (no survival rations here!
These elements can be added to any of our experiences (where suitable, and time permitting), to enhance and extend the "foodie" experience:
