Team Building

Food Genius Academy is the right team for your team building!

For firms and normal parties, we organise private team building exercise, personalised, for groups that extend from 10 to 100 people, in 90 minutes we will make you prepare your dinner while divided into teams, followed closely by a tight knit group of chefs. Your food will be served to you by our staff during either lunch or dinner, don’t worry, we can provide wine as well!!

Reinforcing the team is the mission.

Working in the kitchen is like working  in a company office where colleagues are motivated to spend time together and collaborate to create new business ideas. Tasks are divided in an harmonious way with new experiments and laughter. Metaphorically kitchens represent the office environment, by drawing a parallel with methods, resources, organisation and competences. The conviviality of creating and cooking together will make the bond between the team something many employers look for daily. But at the same time we show people how hierarchy and collaboration, organisation and action must have perfect balance.

The menu and the Chef

The chefs are chosen based on your needs and budget, within our network

Our menus are elaborated on your wants and needs, on the characteristics of the events and seasonality of produce. We can guarantee yummy options for any participant with dietary restrictions of any kind. 

Our formats:

classic

The group is divided into two or more small groups (depending on the number of participants) just as a real kitchen brigade. each small group will be assigned a partie (appetiser, mains, desserts …) to create a successful dinner. Dishes will be served at the end of the challenged as a sit down, or stand up dinner for all. The attendees have 90 minutes to complete the program and cook for their fellow comrades. While our staff will be serving dinner, you’ll be cradled by some lovely wine (TBD with the menu and budget for the event).

challenge

The group is divided in 2 or more teams depending on the number of participants. Each team will be provided with a recipe they will then have to organise themselves into different task autonomously while being supervised by their team’s professional chef. At the end of the preparation of the dishes, we will have you sat and served by our floor team, then you’ll proceed to vote for the best dish of the evening.
