THE CONCEPT Corporate Team Building trough tasting and Cooking What a Delicious Idea! Team building through cooking and tasting is an alternative to rope climbing, golf outings and treasure hunts. It is an enjoyable opportunity to bring together employees from various departments in your organization, create an experience for them to meet and to work together as a team, by producing immediate and tangible results. Food & wine have always been a perfect way to bring people together. By cooking, drinking and eating together, teams can discover the ingredients for successful and effective performance. For example, if the goal is to work on problem-solving skills, participants could be given all of the ingredients for a recipe, but not all of the instructions. However, most groups prefer more loosely structured sessions for groups that want to spend time together and have fun.
