Cooking Classes as Team Building

The kitchen represents a microcosm of the working world with deadlines, decision-making and cooperation necessary to succeed.  Cooking is based on a system of organization and it is all about team building!

After a short introduction, including safety lessons and basic knife skills, the group is formed into teams. Each team chooses a team leader and is presented with a "Culinary Challenge."  For the next 1.5 to 2 hours the teams have to prepare the food, following the given guidelines, which are far away from being complete recipes. The main goal is to work together, using inspiration, creativity and trust in each other. The final dinner is when the ice is broken and everyone gets a new taste about who they really are besides a corporate staff member as they reflection on the collaborative cooking experience.
