Why Team Cooking?

Team morale is a vital part of any organisation. At the Urban Kitchen we have cooking classes that challenge the group dynamic in a fun environment. Whether it is simply a team get-together or an opportunity to grow your team’s relationships, at Urban Kitchen everyone has a smile on their face at the end of the day.

Our cooking classes provide your team with a great activity, plenty of laughs and the ability to learn new skills. Our highly trained chefs are charismatic and true foodies, passionate to involve others in their skill.

The Benefits

The team that cooks and eats together, works better together. From offices to external sales teams, research consistently shows that when people eat together, they become a tighter-knit group. In today’s competitive markets, a cohesive, productive team is more vital than ever—and the way to get there can be as simple as a corporate cooking class.

Food is something we all have in common: Everybody eats. Eating together encourages a range of healthy activities, including

  • Group interaction
  • Team cohesion
  • Problem solving
  • Discussion of solutions, successes, and challenges

Add

  • Branded aprons
  • Photographer
  • Retro games – includes table tennis & indoor lawn bowls
  • Other team building activities
  • Master chef challenges
  • Tour of a commercial kitchen by the chef
  • Conference facilities
  • Additional catering
