Honed over three years, by our team of business and culinary experts, we’ve figured out how to use a kitchen to foster collaboration and innovation while your team members build trust with one another. In the end, this sets you on the road to higher performing teams.

Maybe that’s why hundreds of organizations from Kimberly Clark to Apple and Amazon to Pizza Hut, have been through our corporate team building program–in Atlanta and Dallas. And why we have so many tasty reviews.



Helping you build better teams is the main goal of our team building events. But if your group would just like to have a great time, experience a little healthy (Chopped-like) competition and enjoy a great meal, you can do that too.

Culinary teambuilding is ideal for…

  • Sales teams
  • Executive teams
  • Creative and brainstorming teams
  • Professional service account teams/paired with clients
  • Boards of Directors
  • Recently merged or acquired companies
  • To say “Thank You” to clients, employees or donors
  • Any group that wants to work better together

Why culinary teambuilding?

According to the Harvard Business Review: “Experts project that within a few years, more than 1.3 billion people will work virtually worldwide. That’s no surprise. It’s a trend we all see every day in our own business experience. Technology makes it possible for teams and colleagues to connect and collaborate across the country, or across the globe.

 

Employees like the flexibility of a virtual work style. And companies like the cost savings. For example, according to INC Magazine, companies can save up to $11,000 per year for each virtual employee they hire. So, it makes perfect sense.

 

But there’s a downside to remote and virtual teams.

 

Untethered, virtual employees complain that their work lives often lack a sense of community and the richness of collaboration. Many experience far too little unstructured social contact.


INC says that in order to get the most from remote workers managers need to:

 

  • Increase communication as you increase distance
  • Bring your virtual employees into meetings
  • Schedule periodic team building events
  • Make expectations crystal clear
  • Celebrate success

Team Building with Taste is a proven, cost effective team building program that revolves around people’s love of food and cooking. It can be part used for an occasional team building touch-up, or be part of an ongoing program. It’s also a perfect way to onboard new employees or bring together newly merged or acquired teams.

Who’s taken the Team Building with Taste challenge?

More than 600 organizations and 15,000 participants.


   I wanted to thank you and your team for a WONDERFUL event. I heard over and over how much fun they had and how it was the best team building event they had ever attended.   

Cathy Pharis, Wells Fargo

    Thank you for a great evening. Everyone had a great time and is continuing to talk about it today. Please thank the chefs and everyone involved.

    We absolutely LOVED the food challenge event yesterday! It incorporated all of the ingredients necessary to bring the team members together and have them work towards (and achieve) a goal as a team.

KITCHEN AND MEETING FACILITIES

 

Have you ever cooked in a commercial kitchen? You’ll use equipment the pros use, like a Salamander broiler that can cook a steak that you just can’t make at home. Or deep fryers that will get those potatoes, or even those cauliflower florets, crisp and tasty.

 

Our Atlanta event space can comfortably accommodate 60 guests. It’s completely outfitted with overhead projection equipment, a professional sound system, HDMI, Wi-Fi and other technology. It’s perfect for business meetings. But, it’s even better for business meetings that start in the event space and end in the kitchen with some culinary team building.
