Team Building Events

"Team = a collection of people who must work interdependently to achieve a common goal or output"

Just as in the office, your team are accountable for the collective performance, so they will be in the kitchen!  Each activity is designed to challenge your team to work together.  Healthy conflict and natural competitiveness are brought to the fore, whilst encouraging the key skills needed to improve communication and reduce negative conflict.  All courses are tailored to fit with your team's needs and your company's objectives for the day.

In the Kitchen ...

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.

Hill's 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.

The 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.

Get Your Bake-Off ... On!

The country is still bitten by the bake-off bug! 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.

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.

Reward or Just for Fun!

Sometimes, you just want to say thanks to your team for working hard, finishing that tough project or hitting that deadline or sales target.

You can choose from one of the more competitive activities, all of which are designed around the needs of your team.  Alternatively, you can opt for a more relaxing shovel steak or pizza party ... cooking your own food around the fire with a cold drink!

The Christmas Party

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, we promise you won't just endure our Christmas outing!

You'll pick up skills, tips and techniques with tasty results. Our tutors are relaxed, knowledgeable and ready to work with your team.

Stuff the Turkey!

Turkey Alfresco?

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 make hot smoke salmon to start; stir fry sprouts and bake a sticky toffee pudding to finish – all on our Weber barbecues.

A Hint of Spice?

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.

Pre-Party Canapes

Partying nearby? Maybe you are at Carden Park or Peckforton Castle? Why not join us to make preparty Canapes with a glass of bubbly (.. or three!) before you head out for dinner?

Festive Bake Off

If sweet is your thing, our Festive bake off will provide a bag of treats to take away such as gingerbread & Viennese mince pies.
