Corporate Team Building Cooking Activities

Parties That Cook has been uniting teams through hands-on cooking since 1999. Our hands-on corporate cooking events encourage team building activities, group bonding, improved communication, and foster camaraderie while whipping up fun in the kitchen!

It’s something our firm had never done before, and it took care of 3 things we needed to cover at once: Team Building, Competition and Dinner! It is a well-organized event and Parties That Cook makes sure that knowledgeable, friendly people will lead the group and are good at making sure everyone is getting the most out of their experience.

We have a Team Building Experience for everyone!

Select from our corporate event formats, ranging from reception-style appetizer parties to Iron Chef-style cooking competitions. Whether you want a casual event or formal dining experience, we'll customize the event to fit your needs. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction.
