If you are a fan of cuisine, that is your stop. Tired of always eating the same thing, that is your stop. Eager to impress your closed ones, that is your stop. Or even eager to learn, that is your stop. If you are a human being, you should try a cooking class.

But how to find an interest for a cooking class as a team building activity when you are a company? The truth is that managing a restaurant requires a lot of organization. The place where you find the second strictest hierarchy after the military is in a kitchen of a restaurant. Everyone has its function, and their actions are monitored and timed. A cooking class is therefore a good place to learn organization and teamwork. But of course this cooking class is not about preparing food for 100 people. The purpose is to learn a new recipe, new cooking technics, or both, in a relaxing environment.

A chef will be here to guide throughout the entire preparation of the dish, and will help you in case you are unsure of what you are doing. He will also tell the little secrets that transform a regular dish into a masterpiece. A chef d’oeuvre as they say in France. The type of things that will make your closed ones ask you how to cook what you cooked for them.

Food is one of the best things to bring people together and to strengthen bonds, both when you are preparing and sharing the food. Here lies maybe the definition of cuisine: sharing. And if I would need one word to convince you to do a cooking class as a team building activity, I would use “sharing”. That what makes us humans actually, and any activity that insure social interactions is a must for any company.
