Stress in the workplace is on the rise, which in turn can have negative effect on staff morale and productivity. A nutritious diet can have an enormous beneficial effect on the hormone balance in your body, which can help regulate your energy levels and ability to deal with stress in the workplace.

Learning to cook nutritious home cooked food is the first and most important step in creating a healthy body and mind. We have designed very informative and fun cookery lessons that will empower your staff with the tools needed to get the on the road to becoming kitchen kings and queens.

The classes have a slight competitive edge, along with an emphasis on teambuilding and problem solving. The chefs will pick a winning team based on the how the group works together and also if the food is EDIBLE.

This is the ultimate teambuilding event there will be very quick cook off to discover the best chefs in the group. They will then be appointed as a head chef to a team. Each team will have to pick their own ingredients and come up with their own dishes. One team will serve the starter, one will serve the main and one will serve the dessert to the group. You then decide the best dish. Its chaos but great fun.
