Corporate Team Building

The Chubby Cook’s private, hands-on cooking classes are always a memorable culinary experience and the perfect choice for corporate team-building events.

All of our team-building cooking classes feature deluxe custom menus. A staff instructor will consult with you to create the perfect menu for your group. Teambuilding classes include a friendly staff to greet you and your guests and a full meal carefully prepared by everyone in the group. You will enjoy private use of our beautifully equipped professional kitchen, expert instruction, outstanding service, and loads of fun! Additionally, each guest will receive a copy of each recipe.

Optional extra team building events include our Chef’s Challenges such as the “Iron Chef” style event or “Top Chef” style of challenge. Ask us for more details.

Our team-building events help bring results to the table. Through a challenging and entertaining afternoon or evening, your attendees will learn to understand each other, communicate better and build stronger working relationships that will help your business grow.

How does it work?


Each class takes place in our professional kitchen where your attendees will become familiar with new techniques, skills, and food styles.


Before you come to the kitchen, we’ll spend time planning your event.  We’ll define an objective for your team and we will customize a theme and a menu based on your input and our culinary expertise.  Our chefs have mastered many cuisines and are well-seasoned in global styles of cooking.  We take the fear factor out of the equation for you. We are accustomed to working with people who are comfortable in the kitchen, with people who are afraid of the kitchen, and with people who don’t really care about the kitchen.

When your team arrives at The Chubby Cook, we will rev up their palates with incredible appetizers served in a relaxed social setting.  Once they’re settled in, we introduce them to the chef, instructors, and staff.  Chef will then walk them through the menu, the tasks, the challenges they face, and will help them work their way to a perfect presentation as part of a gourmet meal.  At the end of the session, we will debrief by talking about what we have learned, what were the challenges, and how they were overcome.

There are no cookie-cutter events at The Chubby Cook. We custom design each menu and each session. Whether you choose a competitive challenge like Iron Chef, a collaborative hands-on instruction class, or a learning based demonstration class, you will find your team engaged, entertained and educated.
