Talk about anything BUT work…

The success of most organisations depends on the ability of individuals to build effective teams. The main goals of team-building are to improve productivity and motivation. Taking employees out of the office helps groups break down political and personal barriers, eliminate distractions, and have fun.

Our fun-filled corporate days aren’t your average team building, they are light hearted, informal and great fun. Our expert chef will guide your colleagues as they get creative in the kitchen, inventing new ideas and trying out flavours. Events are tailored to meet the needs of your business, with one essential added ingredient – fun!  If you need to get work done before your event its not a problem, we have conference facilities as well as hotel rooms, spa, pool & large gym.

Team Build – choose your own twist

Whether a few hours in the afternoon/ evening or a full day’s activity, Food Sorcery tailor events to client’s needs.  The focus can be principally collaborative or competitive  with additional activities such as foraging or cocktail mixology skills built in to ensure fun and laughter throughout.  The balance of the day is an important consideration… “It’s key that the attendees are not too hungry when cooking but are hungry when the banquet is shared!!” …events after work start with canapés whereas a morning start may pause for bacon butties (always with a vegetarian and healthy option).  What works for you…..
