Corporate Cookery School Team Building Sessions

Our Cookery School revolves around serious, but unpretentious real food, just like our Deli and Restaurant!

Claude will show your team how to achieve the simple basics right through to having enough confidence and flare to be able to cook a three or four course meal.

Our Corporate Team Building Sessions have several formats.

  1. Corporate Team Building Day
  2. Hands on for Beginners
  3. Demonstration Course only

All our courses includes welcome Coffee, full demonstration with recipe pack and a full lunch/dinner with wine and coffee.

Please note that the Corporate Cookery Courses requires a minimum of 10 guests and that a non-refundable £200 deposit is payable when reserving.

Corporate Team Building Day

The format for this day/evening revolves around Claude demonstrating a three course Menu, over a period of 1 ½ hours. It’s then over to the team to replicate the three courses in a 2 hour period so that it is ready for them to eat, Claude gives the Team his top three tips and then supervises the chaos, laughs and general Team spirit that prevails. He isn’t without a few surprises up his sleeve to make sure the session goes with a BANG!

Note; You need approximately 6 Hours for this course
