Corporate Events

We pride ourselves in delivering tasty team boosting events be it bake offs, street food, shovel steak, mystery boxes or for those a little more competitive we can expose their MasterChef skills...or not! Outside our large fire pit, wood fired oven and barbecue terrace with views across the Cheshire countryside provide a great location for fresh air, al fresco cooking and relaxed conversation.

You could find yourself in the kitchen with your colleagues expectantly gazing into the oven bake off style, or developing those knife skills for use in everyday life, then again the smoked beer can chicken and chocolate puddings cooked on our barbecues are pretty tasty too.

If you’ve been cooped up in a conference building your budgets and sorting out your strategies, it might be time to gather around the glowing embers of our fire pit, heat up your shovel and watch your steak sizzle. Or maybe slide your own hand stretched pizza into the wood burning oven sipping something cold as it bakes alongside a live fire.

Shovel Steak

Once the flames die down we’re left with a red hot glow perfect for gathering around and cooking on. Settle your shovel on the embers, season your steak then sear it to your liking.

Mystery Box

Blue sky cooking! It’s a box of ingredients but what will you do with it? Go traditional, go street, sharing, formal, spicy, classic or a bit Mastercheffy? It’s up to the team to get dinner on the table.

Pizza Party

There’s no pizza quite like a pizza cooked in a wood fired oven. Learn how to control heat in the oven, push the fire back, stretch the dough, choose your topping and slide it into the oven and watch it rise alongside a live fire.

Barbecue Boot Camp

Get beyond the burnt burger and scorched sausage working together to create a delicious grilled feast. Learn how to light, control, bake, roast, sear and smoke on our range of Weber grills.

Hills Kitchen

We promise not to ‘Ramsey’ you but you must work together and communicate as a team to get dinner to your colleagues. Communication and timing are critical so that each course is served at its peak.

Street Food

Fragrant flavours brought together in lots of tasty bites. You’ll create a selection of dishes together with your colleagues to share at the table.

Get Your Bake off….on!

The country has been bitten by the bake off bug and who can resist the aroma and taste of freshly baked goods. Sift, stir, roll and pipe your way to some wonderful treats and of course avoiding that soggy bottom.

Stuff the Turkey!

It’s that time of year again, time to get the team together & celebrate your successes before you head off for the Christmas break.

Of course you can be processed with the masses on the relentless turkey conveyor belt or alternatively slow it down a little, making time for and memories with colleagues.

Our charming Victorian school hall will be traditionally decorated and our kitchen immaculately laid out awaiting your arrival. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll find our tutors relaxed, knowledgeable and ready to work with your team.

You can go ‘off script’’ with our street food session creating fresh, fragrant dishes with a hit of spice, or join Chorchaba to create beautifully balanced Thai classics. If sweet things are your thing our Festive bake off will provide a bag of treats to take away such as gingerbread & Viennese mince pies.

Of course, we won’t forget the Christmas traditions & turkey is certainly on our menu…with a twist! Ours will have a gorgeous paprika rub on it and will be spit roasted by you and your colleagues over glowing charcoal. You’ll also hot smoke salmon to start; stir fry sprouts and bake a sticky toffee pudding to finish – all on our Weber barbecues.

Whatever you choose to do we promise you won’t just endure your Christmas outing, you’ll pick up skills, tips and techniques with tasty results.
