Ignite your company’s team spirit with an interactive cooking challenge, full of fun and laughter.

Cooking Classes

We offer 3 hour cooking sessions with many styles of cuisine.

Our classes are specifically designed to make cooking less intimidating, increase your skills and confidence, and allow you to explore your unique flair. Enjoy helping prepare the food and joining in the cooking process, resulting in a more enjoyable and beneficial learning outcome than simply observing a cooking demonstration.
