Customize unique team-building events to suit your needs. They may vary in format, number of participants, length and design: focus is on building relationships, getting to know colleagues, or break the ice at the start of a conference, course, retreat or meeting.
Nothing Builds a Team Like Cuisine
Team-building events have a host of positive outcomes:
Foster solidarity and collaboration
Break down barriers
Build new relationships with colleagues and customers
Improve time management skills
Stimulate problem solving skills
Team building events are limited solely by your imagination and goals.
Nothing draws people together faster than a good meal, unless it’s preparing one. Here are a few of our suggestions on how to incorporate la cucina Italiana to build a stronger, better, more satisfied group.
›› WINE TASTING
Five white wines and five red wines will be presented by a sommelier and sampled by all participants. The same wines will then be poured again and teams of four to five participants will work together to correctly identify the wines. Bottles of wine will be given to the winning team.
›› FUSION COOKING
Participants will be divided into teams of four or five. An Italian menu will be provided to all participants. Standard ingredients from other cuisines (typically Thai, Chinese, Mexican and Middle Eastern) will be available and each team must select a cuisine and create a fusion variation of the Italian menu. An award will be given for the best fusion menu created.
›› RECIPE & MEAL CREATION EVENT
Teams of four to five will use tokens to purchase ingredients for a meal created by the team. The meal will be rated on a variety of parameters including originality, taste, presentation, speed of preparation, cost of ingredients and sustainability. The winning team will receive a prize.
›› ICEBREAKER GOURMET WITH ROUND ROBIN SEATING
Seating will change after each of the four courses, which allows all participants to get to know each other over the course of the meal.
