culinary team building /
Anthropologists often use the term ‘commensality’ to describe the special bond between people who eat together. It is well documented that food has the unique ability to unite people in a relaxed atmosphere. Coriander Leaf culinary team building / corporate bonding programs were developed with that point in mind. Suitable for inter-department team bonding, top management team building, client-relations, regional meeting gatherings, or as an ice-breaker prior to a workshop or the closing activity for quarterly meetings… we incorporate organisational objectives through the way we structure critical components within the programme.
The team building session is in the format of a fun cooking competition; where although it is not a formal activity, the program has been designed to include successful elements of team building throughout.
Assured participants will have an extremely enjoyable and memorable experience with endless opportunities to interact, communicate and coordinate with other members of the group.
