Behind every great business is a strong, well-connected team that can work together.

If you’re looking to create an atmosphere where new ideas and bonds can flourish, a fun and engaging day of group activities is a great way to take your staff out of the office and allow them to think outside the box.

But getting everyone together in the same place (and doing something they’re interested in) isn’t always easy…

That’s why you’ll be happy to know The Abinger Cookery School facilitates corporate events! So, why not start 2023 with a bang?

Create bonds in the kitchen that’ll carry over to the conference room and strengthen your team’s productivity, collaboration and problem-solving skills. You know what they say: a team who cooks together works better together (or something like that).

Coming right up…

Creating a meal from scratch takes time and dedication. You need to be mindful of your time management, have excellent organisational skills and work well under pressure — much like in the office!

No matter the cooking experience your team has, we’ll work with you to create the perfect menu for your event and provide all the recipes, ingredients and equipment (all you’ll need to bring is you’re A game!).

Learn to roll sushi like a pro, creating dishes like salmon and avocado maki rolls and colourful tempura vegetable California rolls.

Indulge in Thai corn cakes, sticky chicken satay and delicious filled mango and prawn rice paper rolls. Sound delicious? No wonder street food is all the rage!

Or get things sizzling with our wide variety of Weber Grill Academy courses, running from our outdoor pergola all year round. From juicy burgers to sweet treats, you’ll be amazed at the delicious dishes that can come from a barbecuing session — and your team’s newfound skills.

Is your mouth watering yet? That’s just a little taste of all that’s to come…

Turn up the heat

Working together toward the shared enjoyment of eating is one of the greatest experiences. Your team will split up to prepare and cook different parts of a menu before coming back together to relish the feast they’ve created.

Under the guidance of our professional chefs, each member will learn new skills and techniques, such as food preparation, knife skills and technical elements that’ll turn them from novices to (almost) pros.

Want to up the ante? We can even include a competitive element to your event — think Master Chef — with a sushi-making competition or barbecue grill-off.

After the sweet, sweet prize of camaraderie (and bragging rights, of course), your team can come back together for business. Our school includes a large dining room with a TV, so all bases are covered if you need a space for business meetings or presentations.

You’re the boss

What are you waiting for? We cater for a minimum of six people per course, so get the whole team in to enjoy the fun (and food)!

We offer both half-day and full-day classes, where you’ll be welcomed with a tasty batch of Lizzie’s homemade cookies and enough coffee to fuel you for the day. Alternatively, book an evening class and expect a glass of prosecco on arrival before cracking on and making some divine dishes in our modern, fully equipped kitchens.
