Food brings people together
Even better when the people are working together in the same organisation. My corporate classes are great for team building. Just ask the 100+ organisations I have worked with over the past twelve years. In my class, participants team up to to create a delicious meal that everybody will enjoy. Some classes include a warm-up in the form of a visit to a local wet market to buy the ingredients needed for the hands-on cooking class. In the process, everyone gets to know each other better in a relaxing environment and a fun activity.
Don’t forget to take a look at videos of our corporate classes!
