Team Building Activity: Make an Elegant Italian Meal Together

Bring your team together for a family-style Italian meal with this exciting team building activity. Culinary expert Chef Jimi will lead the way in teaching your team how to create authentic and unforgettable Italian dishes using professional cooking techniques. 

They’ll begin the class by simmering an elegant, savory fennel caponata featuring wholesome vegetables. Next, everyone will prepare a restaurant-worthy entrée of either tangy chicken with balsamic and Parmesan polenta or a classic chicken Parmesan with creamy mushroom risotto. For dessert, they’ll sink their spoons into a silky white chocolate panna cotta as everyone mingles and relaxes outside of the office. 

With this team building event, you get to treat everyone to a fancy meal and a fun activity all in one!

Chef Jimi was great! Both my wife and myself enjoyed the fantastic meals he prepared for us to celebrate Mother’s Day 22’. We would definitely book him again, despite a hiccup in timing- we were very satisfied and I’m sure you would be also if you booked him!
