Team building cooking classes: A new way to bond

Our corporate cooking classes are a delicious, interactive way for remote teams to bond together in Johannesburg.

We’ve worked with finance, mining, media, and energy companies, and our classes are perfect for team leaders and HR managers looking to improve team morale.

Why try a team building cooking class?

With remote work creating disparate teams, new team members may feel unwelcome, and stress and high pressure may affect team morale.

Finding a fun and effective team building activity can be tough. That’s why we offer something unique that your team will love.

Happy client: Pepsi

When Pepsi booked a class with us in February 2023, they chose authentic Thai food, and one person had a strict halal dietary requirement.

They opted for our Gold drinks package, which includes spirits, wine, beer, ciders, mixers, and non-alcoholic beverages.

The 12 people across their branding team joined the class, and they had a blast cooking and enjoying the food together.

We’re thrilled to hear that our recipes were more flavorful than most of the Thai restaurants they’ve visited in SA!

Happy client: Thungela Mining

During their visit in December 2022, Thungela Mining’s talent and training team chose a rustic Italian menu with a pescatarian option, which included a variety of delectable dishes.

The 8 people from their talent and training team had a great time cooking and learning together.

We’re thrilled to have been a part of this team-building experience and look forward to working with them again in the future.


Custom-made for every diet

Dietary requirements can be a concern for some teams. Luckily, we’ve got you covered.

We customize our menus to your team’s dietary needs and restrictions, including halaal and vegetarian options. We also make provisions for non-drinkers.

For specific packages, you also receive a copy of the recipes you make!

Happy client: Sasol

Sasol has booked our services three times, bringing the total number of their attendees to 40 people.

On two occasions, they chose Thai cuisine, while the third time, they went for a rustic Italian menu.

Without a doubt, each time, Sasol’s team had a blast learning and bonding over mouth-watering food.

To enhance their experience, Sasol’s team opted for a wine pairing with their meals, which added an extra layer of enjoyment to the occasion.

Happy client: Publicis Groupe

In December 2022, Publicis Groupe reserved one of our classes and requested a fully Halal menu that excluded pork and alcohol.

They selected our popular Global food menu, which features a set number of dishes from various regions around the world.

During the class, they were able to create some delectable dishes such as Isonka samanzi, Amaretti biscuits, and Aloo gobi.

These dishes were a hit among the 18 attendees, and we were thrilled to receive such positive feedback.

We take great pride in tailoring our menus to cater to the unique preferences and requirements of our clients. We are delighted to hear that Publicis Groupe had a fantastic experience with us.
