What Clients Are Saying

"I knew it would be perfect for a team building event. The best part was the excitement of cooking with mystery ingredients and the competitive spirit it brought out in everyone."
Sheetal Kapani, Silicon Valley Bank

"It was really fun, perfect for our group size, and priced reasonably. There were a lot of great things about our event: the easy instructions, great atmosphere and people."
Micah Sharp, Red Giant

“Going into the event my group told me they weren't skilled in the kitchen. You gave them the confidence to do something out of their comfort zone. We typically go to dinner as a group, but only sit there. This allowed us to move around and interact with everyone."
Kiza Miller, Nike, Inc.
