Working in a kitchen demands team work, working to exacting standards and the ability to work under pressure and in real time.

Not only is this fun it is also an excellent way to illustrate critical and key teamwork skills in practice.

What is it?
Our courses are aimed at teams who need to work better together. It can also be a fun experience for established teams to reinforce the team bonds that bring success.
Our internationally experienced HR professionals outline the aims and objectives of the session, detailing the team leadership and/or team skills and development objectives of each session.
We wrap up at the end over team prepared food to highlight the lessons learned and takeaways from the experience.
Sessions can be tailored to specific team needs, or can focus on practised team success skills that we know are key to team success.
Teams will explore the walled garden and select produce to create a team menu under the tutelage of both our HR experts and our internationally acclaimed chef Robert Gledow.
Our experts will guide you through both the team learnings from cooking together and ensure you get the most out of the cooking experiences.
