What is culinary team building?

It is the oldest group activity known to mankind.  Cooking together has, for millennia, been the most natural and effective way to build community and relationships.  When your group gathers to create a gourmet meal together in a casual environment with no pressure, sparks fly, imaginations ignite, relationships strengthen, and laughter is heard. The additional reward is immediately enjoying the results of your efforts by dining together with your group.

What are appropriate occasions for corporate culinary team building?

Gathering together to cook and enjoy good food and wine creates a natural and easy way for any corporate group to interact with a common focus. No more nervously standing around the punch bowl! Clients sometimes use these corporate team building activities to bring together remote groups for quality face to face networking time. Beyond the classic corporate team building activities HOG also hosts fabulous holiday parties, reward dinners and more.

How do we get a return on our investment?

It is amazing how barriers can be broken when staff at all corporate levels stretch fresh mozzarella or stuff homemade sausage side-by-side. Corporate team building is not just a crisis activity but a healthy development tool for teams designed to improve productivity, communication and motivation. The success of most organizations relies on cooperation and building good teams which are enhanced by culinary team building events. By working together toward a common goal (a delicious meal), our corporate team building events are sure to boost company morale.

How does our group work together at your events?

At the majority of our events, groups work together at cooking stations under the tutelage of professional chefs to create a gourmet dish together. We can also arrange fun cooking competitions or additional team building exercises or discussions.
