What our team cookery experience involves

Our cookery team days are perfect for any teams that want to bring colleagues together in a fun, relaxed environment.

Businesses use us for:

  • Full day & half day team events
  • Groups from 8-30
  • We can adapt menus for different dietary requirements if we know in advance

Highlights include:

  • Being taught by an expert chef with great communication skills
  • Spending a day away from the office in the grounds of the Catton Estate
  • Being offline – we do have WiFi, but most companies choose to turn off phones & spend enjoying the company of colleagues
  • Eating delicious food
  • Learning some skills to take home, the true test of a memorable day
