Why Culinary Team Building? Glad You Asked!

Live, Virtual Culinary Team Building

 

 

It’s a recipe for creating culture, community, and collaboration virtually in the workplace.

Or for any group that needs some virtual togetherness.

Powered by ZOOM, enjoy all the fun and creativity of a hands-on culinary team building event even when you’re not face-to-face.

This activity can take on any flavor your team is looking for. Cook a dish together. Break into teams to collaborate. Enjoy your meal and conversation. Or compete!

Cooking is about the magic of transformation; the emergence of a beautiful, delicious, nourishing meal that is complete and satisfies in a way that no one individual component alone could.  

Bring your diverse cast of characters, your company, your team of any kind, and even your family together for a true transformational experience.

After all, the words “company” and “companion” spring from the same two root words – “com” which means “together” and “panis” which means “bread”.

A company is simply those who break bread together.

And as a result, accomplish great things.
