Team Building Cooking Classes

Our cooking team building activities are built to suit your team. The event can be as simple as getting together to cook and eat together, or we can introduce competitive elements. It might not be an extreme assault course, but it’s amazing how creating the best dish brings out the competitive spirit in teams. At the end of the cooking, all the team can sit down to enjoy their culinary endeavours together. Whether you choose a more relaxed or competitive day, your team will be well looked after.

We’ve created corporate team building events for small and large businesses, as well as for specialised groups such as the British Swimming team. Thanks to our roster of chefs, you can choose different food themes, including baking, BBQ and Italian food. We can also cater for specific dietary requirements as needed.

The Seasoned team will take care of all the practicalities of that many people in a kitchen, including all the washing up. We can accommodate 12 to 18 people on the cooking front, with space for 24 in total. Our dining room can also be used as a meeting space if you wanted to combine cooking team building activities with other content on the day. We offer plenty of parking space as well as being located minutes from major routes through the Midlands. Please call us to discuss your away day requirements or click here to send us an email.
