It’s clear that team building is one of the most positive and productive events you can plan for your organization. But what kind of event should you design? There is no better way to bring people together than the one thing that we all need and enjoy every day: food. To create a unique event, let the Orlando team building foodies at Fun Planners help you plan a delicious event that will bring your team and their taste buds together. Here are some interactive ideas for cooking classes that your team can participate in:

  • Sushi Rolling

Sushi rolling is a traditional culinary art that not many know how to do, which calls for a learning experience regardless if someone dislikes sushi. Your team will collaborate in stations, with each individual station dedicated to a different piece in the sushi making process. The teamwork involved will inspire your employees to create a masterpiece!

  • Pasta Designing

Who doesn’t love the idea of cooking a hearty Italian pasta dish? Making pasta may seem like a simple task, but a cooking class will also teach your team how to make decadent sauce and desserts to pair with it. Your group can also enjoy wine tastings while they cook, a great way for them to bond and relax.

  • Carnivorous Classes

For meat lovers, there are also classes dedicated to a more smokehouse style. There are charcuterie board classes for a simple taste, or there are even hands-on classes dedicated to making sausage and other meats beginning in the processing room. Enjoy the instructions on how to create original barbecue sauce to pair with the protein.

  • Anything and Everything

If you simply just can’t choose which food group your team might enjoy making and tasting the most, try out a generalized cooking class where each class makes something different every time it’s held. It’s usually designed as a surprise, where guests won’t know what’s on the menu until they’re already at the venue in their aprons. Typically, these types of classes involve an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert, so there is room for everyone to find something they can enjoy.

  • Competitive Cooking

For a team building event that incites a little friendly competition among your employees, pick a cooking class that chooses teams and pairs them against each other. The judgment comes from the instructor on which dish prepared tastes the best. These types of classes will encourage motivation and teamwork among the members and can be a great way for them to establish communication skills since these classes have a time limit.

Allow your team to get a hands-on experience that will benefit them by allowing them to eat their creations, increase their culinary skills, and leave with a sense of camaraderie with the rest of their colleagues.
