Team Building Activity: Making Pierogis With the Team

Take your team building activity to the next level with this hands-on cooking class led by Chef Desmond. Your team will learn to craft international delights and enjoy the fruits of their labor in a three-course meal. 


Everyone will roll up their sleeves to craft four mouthwatering dishes as they learn culinary skills and enjoy some out-of-office camaraderie. After tossing together a fried goat cheese salad, everyone will learn to make doughy pierogis from scratch, filled with creamy cheese and potatoes. A side dish of tangy bacon Brussels sprouts will provide a lesson in balancing complex flavor profiles. Finally, end this event with an indulgent molten chocolate cake with whipped cream.


All cooking classes are designed to be social events that do not require any previous experience. Guests are welcome to purchase beer or alcoholic beverages from the venue to enjoy during the class.
