Looking for a new way to get your staff energized, or did they earn a special reward for achievements? Chef JoAnna offers several exciting, fun, and educational Team Building options to meet your specific needs. Each session is customized so that each experience is unique, perfect, and memorable. You may have discovered the perfect event for your business group!
Let's face it, your team doesn't need another fleece jacket or coffee mug.
When your team has earned a reward, give them a fun experience!
Research indicates that experiences make us happier than things!
Designing Desserts & TeamBuilding Tapas
A non-competitive team-building session built around fun desserts, or we can use savory ingredients for a 90+ minute activity. Invest a little more time for more interaction! Cooking & Non-cooking options are available; all equipment and accessories provided.
Cake Decorating or Handmade Truffles
Similar to the "Designing Desserts" program, except your team decorates cakes or makes hand-made truffles. If you're pressed for time, your team can have as much fun (and sugar!) as possible in just 60 minutes ...or more? (Chef handles setup & cleanup)
Quantifiable results! Engage all your senses in this 60-90+ minute session. Using various foods, beverages, and music, and occasionally blindfolds (!) your team can use these newly discovered communication skills immediately, with a noticeable impact on improved communication!
Iron Chef Contest ("non-contest")
Participants will get a complete set of tools and equipment to prepare a course using the Mystery Basket ingredients. This 2-3 hour program can be done in ANY space, with or without cooking, to make a complete meal that everyone can enjoy. Ask about how it works!
Meal Planning & Healthy Cooking
Economical shopping tricks, cooking tips & more! In as little as 45 minutes, this program takes your group on a virtual grocery shopping trip, followed by step-by-step instructions on how to meal-prep. Recipes focus on whole foods that are easy to cook & reheat. Includes a 12-recipe cookbook!
Food & Wine Pairing
Chef JoAnna's Food & Wine Pairing is a structured-but-casual session. Whether offered as a team reward, or as a client appreciation event, this 2-3 hour event will not only be a wonderful time sharing food & wines, but it will also impart useful knowledge. (A program that uses "mocktails" is available, too.)
