Corporate Team Building


Working together in unfamiliar territory has a way of creating bonds. Bring your team members together through shared learning, and then relax and enjoy the fruit of your labors. All classes include choice of freshly brewed coffee, assorted teas, sodas, water, and appropriately paired wines. The typical class size is 12, but the Culinary Studio can be configured to accommodate 20 – 25. A selection of gourmet foods and culinary-themed products are available for gift baskets, as are personalized certificates of course completion.
