L’atelier des Chefs: the all-in-one corporate cooking course

It is so difficult finding suitable team building activities that will incorporate the capabilities of all of your troops whilst keeping them constantly motivated and delivering that sense of teamwork that is the essence of such an exercise.

One of the more popular ways of achieving this goal, that doesn’t involve your workforce having to traipse half way across the country already demotivated and in the doghouse with their other half because of the two nights you’ve planned for them doing outdoor pursuits, is the corporate cookery course.

L’atelier des Chefs, a London cookery school that has just opened up its second venue in St Paul’s, has become somewhat expert at organising just this type of hands-on, goal-oriented event. From the concept through to the end result, having worked as a team to get where they are, they know all about what it means to work together and have a bit of fun in the process. No standing up to your knees in a freezing cold river in the middle of Wales, here.

Both the Oxford Circus venue and the new St Paul’s cookery school offer flexibility in a location where space usually comes at a premium, the centre of London, and with contemporary kitchens and Michelin-trained chefs L’atelier des Chefs, whilst holding true to the ‘art of delicious, accessible food‘, have an uncommon view of what team-building is all about.

There are other cookery schools that offer corporate cookery courses, for sure, but the dedicated operations team that organise the events for the London venues not only offer spaces for 12-180 victims employees to work together, but they can also make the elements of the cookery courses bespoke to the specific team-building goals you’re aiming to achieve.

Whether you have would-be Tom Cruises looking to create the perfect company cocktail, are looking to send the guys and gals out to learn to cook for a seasonal event or even set departments head to head against each other in cook-off challenges, L’atelier des Chefs can tailor a menu to suit your needs.

Not only that, their West End venue can host your corporate networking event before taking the results of your labour into a private dining space to hone in on those potential relationships or even host a PR Event for the launch of a new product or if you have some hot off the press news you want to ‘big up’ as an announcement to your team or customer base.

If it all sounds too good to be true, check them out for yourselves. Access their site through our home page on cookerycourses.co.uk where you can sign up to follow them on facebook, receive their newsletter or contact them directly if you’ve already got the event in mind. Bon Apetit, tous les mondes. x

Cookery courses now popular way of enteraining clients

Cooking courses are becoming an increasingly popular form of entertaining clients and staff with many businesses looking for an alternative to the more traditional activities such as golf, clay pigeon shooting and rugby.

The Cambridge Cookery School is one of many cookery schools that have seen a growth in demand. Accountants, Solicitors and Industrialists are all reaching for their chopping boards in an effort to improve business relationships.

Many in the industry accept that the growth in demand is due in no small part to the increasing popularity of cookery programmes on television.

Tine Roche, who is the founder of the Cambridge Cookery School, estimates that 60% of her revenue is now corporate. The sessions can be structured with either team building or entertainment in mind and level of competitiveness can be decided by the corporate host.

The cookery courses can be tailored to suit the needs of the corporate host.

The Edinburgh New Town Cookery School offers a team building class where the participants cook a three course dinner or lunch, which they then enjoy with a glass of wine in our the school’s dining room. The event usually takes around 3 ½ hours and can be booked in the evening or during the day.

The cookery school also organises sessions where wine is the central theme. This can take the form of Wine and Food Pairing Dinner or a Wine Tasting, with the expert knowledge of a wine tutor. The events follow a specific theme, for example, based on a grape type, time of year or specific country. Whisky Tasting can also be arranged with specialist tutors.

The Lavender House Cookery School in Norfolk has recently introduced Chocolate Workshops for corporate clients. These sessions include a chocolate demonstration followed by a hands-on workshop. Also included in the package are lunch, recipe sheets and chocolate truffles to take home.
