What Clients Are Saying

"Our team members were visibly a more cohesive and collaborative group the following day. The competition element of the Executive Kitchen Challenge was a great motivator for our group."
Jessica Christensen, Aequitas Capital Management

"Our event was successful because of the interaction and team building it provided. We all enjoyed the event very much!"
Amanda Chojnacky, Avangate

"The best part of the cooking party was the opportunity to work alongside our colleagues in a fun, upbeat environment. We teased each other, admired each other’s culinary skills and all enjoyed the fabulous meal we cooked. EVERYONE, even those who had been to a team cooking event before, raved about this and said it was the best one ever."
Mary Zissman, Progress Software Corporation
