For slightly bigger groups, as one team cooks the course for the whole group, the other teams will take part in a Team Taste Challenge.   Our entertaining Team Taste challenge includes a fun quiz, spice identification, egg white sprint and food Pictionary.

The whole team really enjoyed themselves and were very excited when they realised it would involve cooking. We were given a warm welcome and the class of wine at the beginning of the session was much appreciated and helped everyone relax with each other. The Chef explained everything to us really well and we all took it in turns doing things and learning new skills. Cooking each course then sitting down with it (washed down with more wine), worked really well. The staff at all times were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Everyone was really buzzing at the end of our session and I really feel it has had a positive impact on us as a team

The event went off very well. Fun was had by all. The day was really well run by our host and the chefs. I also thought it was great how the veggies were accommodated for at each of the sections, even when the main ingredient was meat or fish. The venue was easy to find and our bus was able to park outside for the whole afternoon, which was great because we finished slightly earlier. And the cherry on top of the cake was my team won!! Thanks for all your efforts and the team at Team Tactics.

We had an excellent lunchtime ‘cook off’ session – our welcome was warm and relaxed, our chef was focussed but fun and we definitely both learnt some new skills and came away feeling inspired to do more cooking at home. It was a perfect event for our team and I would certainly recommend the experience to others.

The event very much exceeded our expectations. I was pleased that it had less structure than I anticipated, which meant that people were able to mingle and socialise which was really our top priority. I thought the Chefs did a very good job, not only of handling the crowd but encouraging participation and competition. Overall it was a brilliant night, and everybody was very pleased to have attended.

Its always difficult trying to pick an event that everyone is going to like particularly when it’s a little outside of their comfort zone, it’s the reason I picked it in truth. Getting people to express themselves in a learning environment is always a good exercise, and as I say this event worked a treat.

The host “Greg” was helpful and made us feel at home.
The chef was very good and helped us improve our cooking skills.
The facilities were adequate, clean tidy and everything we needed.

This event was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
One aim was for our employees to mix with colleagues they wouldn't normally have much contact with and this was certainly achieved during the corporate cook off, which had a practical as well as a social aspect.

The evening was a great success and everyone really enjoyed it. Your crew were very friendly and made everyone feel very comfortable.
The food was superb and cooked surprisingly well! If you could send through to me the recipes I'll forward on the rest of my party as I for one would like to recreate the meal at home.
I will definitely be in touch when we are next planning another team get together.

We had a really good time cooking the street food. Everybody participated, people were getting really competitive, trying to get as many gold stars as possible reaching a high when we did the pancake flipping contest. It was just a bit crowded around the cooking stations maybe but that made it also very cosy and a bonding experience. The group really started to mingle.

This was a great success and a well- chosen option. VERY well done !!!

It was fun and above all that was the key element.
John and his team were great hosts and the whole thing relaxed and “unthreatening” and as well as fun we learnt much and practiced some new skills.
The outcomes were very tasty and EVERYONE was effusive of a great day.

The event was extremely well received by all my staff, even those who don’t like “Team Building” as a rule. The teams were well split and the cooking / wine tasting was really well organised and ran smoothly through the evening. The prizes given were also really good and most were pleased to receive something other than a bottle of fizz.
The staff at the venue were attentive and extremely accommodating, I think we drank more than they anticipated and we didn’t leave until gone 9pm. All the chefs were lovely and extremely patient.
Would highly recommend to anyone for an event, and as always thanks to Team Tactics and Melissa for a wonderful event, I am looking forward to Christmas.
