Corporate Cooking and Team Building Classes
The Creative Solution to Corporate Functions and Team Building Events
Luscious Affairs’ Corporate Cooking School is the creative solution to the humdrum functions held in restaurants, tacky bowling alleys, or worse, the office. Give your staff, colleagues and clients a unique and memorable experience.
Hosted in either a private venue or at the Hawthorn Cooking School, a culinary event is created to fit your personal requirements.
Be involved as much or as little as you like – sit back and enjoy fine dining silver service, or get your hands dirty in a fully interactive experience.
Fun and relaxed with laughs and wine flowing, competitive and educational with team building activities, or formal ‘Chef’s table’ dining – the choice is yours.
Previous clients have included: LINFOX, Foster’s Australia, Nokia, ANZ, WorkSafe Victoria, NAB, Nissan and Glaxo Smith Kline, to name but a few.
The classes receive great praise from clients and guests thanks to the high caliber of chefs, the restaurant standard menus and premium ingredients.
I have to say we ALL had such a fun night with your chefs! Loved the food and we all took something away from it which was fantastic. Thanks again for all your help leading up and leaving us in such great hands! Speak to you again in the future, as this was a highlight!
I just wanted to thank you and your wonderful team at Luscious Affairs for making our team activity on Friday so enjoyable – we all loved it and I’m sure each of us learnt something new about cooking. We will definitely recommend you to others!
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves last night, I have received such wonderful feedback. Once again thank you! They are all very eager to try the recipes at home this weekend. ANZ
Cooking School Fees
Class fees begin at $160.00 per person and run for approximately 3 hrs.
This cost includes a three (3) course menu with two (2) glasses of wine.
Please note: there is a minimum of ten (10) guests per class, or the equivalent charge will apply.
Team Building Session Format
Session format is dependent on class size. Class duration is approximately 2.5 – 3 hrs.
In the case of a proposed group size of twelve (12), we would ask you to work as two (2) teams. We recommend that you formulate these teams prior to the session. The aim is to develop new or stronger relationships by encouraging people to work collaboratively in unfamiliar teams.
Each group will be assigned their own personal chef and be asked to cook three (3) courses from recipes as well as create their own dish using a mystery box of ingredients. The groups will be critiqued at the conclusion of the session.
Upon booking your class, please outline you team building goals. Classes may be built to client requirement e.g. competitive environment with a winning team for each course and an overall winner as judged by our chefs.
Teams will be assessed on the final presentation of their dishes, which is almost as important to our judges as the taste.
Communication and Teamwork
Strong teamwork and communication are essential to successfully completing the set tasks; “Yes, Chef!”
Strategy and Time Management
Preparing the dishes within the time frame will be a challenge in itself.
Attention to Detail
The success of certain recipes can be totally dependant on following the recipe to the gram.
Cooking is an art form, and whilst almost anyone can ‘paint by numbers’, a teams’ true creative colours will be revealed when challenged with the mystery box ingredients.
Of course, there is also a strong focus on fun and generally increasing your abilities in the kitchen – all whilst tasting some luscious food and wine along the way.
