Number of people
Ideal for small to medium sized groups
The number of people that can take part in this cooking team building event depends on the kitchen facilities available, but generally small groups of up to 30 people work best.
Perfect for either a full or half day
This cooking team building event can be run as either a stand-alone half or a full day event. It also works well as a follow-on session from a personality profiling workshop in the morning.
Delegates cook together in small teams
The number of people in each team is typically 3-5 persons. The exact team size ultimately depends on the size of the group and chosen venue as each team will be provided with a fully self-contained kitchen in which to work for the duration of the event.
Various venues, all in fabulous locations
The number one requirement to deliver this culinary challenge is for each team to have their own fully self-contained kitchen. We have built relationships with some stunning countryside venues that meet this requirement and ensure a truly memorable experience.
Planning The Menu
Food, of all types, is never far from our thoughts and talked about almost as much as the weather. Lots of restaurants come and then go worryingly quickly, but the great ones stand the test of time and become our favourites.
What is it about those great restaurants that makes them so good, what is their… Recipe for Success?
Without doubt one of the things that makes them great are the teams that run them. And now with Quest’s Recipe for Success cooking team building event you can get a feel for what it takes to run a restaurant for a day.
Working from one of a number of beautiful countryside venues you’ll need to manage a finite budget, make informed purchasing decisions and make the very best of the culinary skills of your team.
Each Recipe for Success event will be tailored to your exact requirements, but this is how your taster day as a team of restaurateurs could look.
Cooking Team Building
You’d better be able to take the heat because you’re going to run a restaurant for the day!
Each team will plan, shop, prepare, cook and serve a three course dinner. All teams will be given the same shopping budget with which they will need to purchase their ingredients.
As well as producing enough servings of each course to feed all their team members, teams must also produce an extra cover for the judges.
All the covers must be identical and presented to the judging panel who will select one for tasting.
Each course will be presented to a tasting panel and they will be asked how much they would be prepared to pay for the dish.
The panel of culinary experts will take into account not just the taste and presentation of the dish but also things like the use of local produce and the variety of cooking methods – and hence skills – used.
The winners of this cooking team building event will be the team that generates the most profit from their three course menu.
