Buddy

Corporate team building and tetreat through cooking is an alternative to rope climbing, golf outings, brainstorming sessions obstacle courses, treasure hunts, etc.

Through the process of food preparation, your group will create both a gourmet meal and a cohesive, results driven team. Good food and dining serve to breakdown cultural and social barriers.

The true focus of the team building experience is to create an atmosphere that promotes comfortable interaction among the team members and an emphasis on having fun.

Groups will have fun while learning through hands-on experience the following concepts:

  • Planning
  • Communicating Effectively
  • Problem Solving
  • Meeting Deadlines
  • Evaluating Results

By using cooking as a tool for facilitating the interaction between coworkers, we provide:

  • the opportunity to team build
  • cooking instruction from a CIA trained chef
  • original menus with delicious recipes
  • a fun, relaxed atmosphere that helps employees develop better rapport and trust
  • the ability to get to know coworkers beyond e-mail and voice mail
  • the means for team members to participate equally in a low-stress, high-fun environment

People Are Saying:

Curriculum

Pre-event

While at Woodhaven Farm

The program begins with a brief orientation on the menu, food safety and outlining goals for the day.

Next, the group is divided into smaller teams responsible for their own part of the meal. Each "team" will work together to prepare one or more of the innovative dishes. All the recipes, fresh ingredients and equipment are supplied to you. While cooking, teams are encouraged to problem solve, share ideas with other groups and receive as little instruction as possible from the Chef.

Upon completion, each group will present their beautifully created dishes. The entire group sits down together for a fabulous dining experience.

Teams meet and discuss what they have learned in the kitchen and about the team building process.
