Corporate Client Reviews
What Clients Are Saying

"It was perfect!! We thought about cart racing, but really enjoy the cooking aspect of bonding. It forces people to work together as a team but yet learn a little more about each other and not talk shop. I've used Parties That Cook for 3 or 4 times now and never had an unpleasant event!!"
Beverly Zweigle, Logitech, Inc.

"Whirlyball (ugh), bowling party (no thank you), fancy dinner out (runner-up). Cooking was not stressful, but fun and achievable. Loved the family-style sit-down meal after cooking. I will definitely recommend you, and already have since last night."
Kristen Joy, Amazon

"We wanted more than just a dinner. An activity that was fun, yet team building at the same time. Both were accomplished."
Leslie Ulwelling, Nike

You could say we've put this recipe through the ringer. We tested it at recipe testing for our spring menus. Then, we tweaked it for Cookbook Club. Finally, we perfected it for our spring corporate events. And now we’re giving it to you! We’re sure you’ll enjoy this sweet yet tart treat as much as I've enjoyed every step of the taste-testing process.
