Corporate Team Building Cooking Classes

Bring together colleagues and clients or friends and family members and arrange a hands on cooking class.

A typical cooking class consists of hands-on participation by you and your guests in the preparation of a 3 or 4- course menu and 3 hours in duration and then enjoy the 'fruits of your labour' with a glass of wine.

All menus are custom-designed based on your preferences, seasonal ingredients, and your guests' dietary restrictions and/or allergies.

Looking to add a "Wine Package" to compliment your culinary experience with us? We will include a Sommelier Wine Presentation and wine pairing for your chosen menu (with a minimum 10 people)

The base price for an individual Team Building Class is $125.00 per person for a minimum of 8 people to a maximum of 14 people.

The base price includes the instructor, food, printed recipes.

Other charge may include: mineral water soft drinks, additional wine or Champagne

LA CUCINA ITALIANA - ITALIAN COOKING CLASSES

All the cooking classes are taught by Oscar Turchi with over 25 years of experience in Mediterranean and Italian cuisine. The Program has
a total of 10 classes. In each class, you‘ll learn to prepare 4 to 5 recipes from start to finish, from antipasto to dessert and everything in the between.

Get a firm grasp of basic Italian cooking techniques and an understanding of essential Italian ingredients. You will then sit down and enjoy the dishes you cooked in
a friendly atmosphere.

We believe that the only way to learn to cook is to do it yourself. While we will demonstrate the techniques, be prepared to roll up your sleeves and put what you have seen into
practice. The lessons are informal and the chef is flexible and willing to add those special dishes you always wanted to learn to make.
