EVENT OVERVIEW

 

What happens at a Social Cooking event ?

A Social Cooking event is amazing, fun, interactive, competitive, with dinner, dessert, thrills and spills.
  • Guests arrive to our very cool live kitchen with our team busying themselves with final prep. This gives the impression of a pumping kitchen and builds suspense. The kitchen will be fabulous, colorful, ingredients all set, warm and exciting with music to set the scene.
  • A huge warm welcome, bags and coats taken from our guests to get everyone relaxed and welcome drinks served within 30 seconds.
  • We let this ice breaker session go for 17 mins. Platters can be served and often add allot value.

  • Chef gives a powerful run through on health & safety to build energy and set the competitiveness, low relaxed or full on hell’s kitchen, you choose.
