The sun is coming out, the days are getting longer and spring is here! Now is the perfect time to plan a team building activity or pre-Christmas party! Bring your team to Social Cooking and experience a different kind of team building challenge.
Choose from any of our specialised Masterchef style formats, and bring your work mates together for a fun, engaging team building event. Our events encourage creativity, problem solving, delegation and breaking down barriers between team members. Everyone knows there’s nothing like cooking and eating together to build camaraderie and a positive culture.
All our events include the event itself, guided by one of our team of professional chefs, all ingredients required to complete the challenge, and a meal shared by all team members to wrap up. We even throw in a delicious dessert with any of our three hour challenges. We’ll be hosting events daily, three times per day, so contact our team now for more information.

Masterchef Team Building Challenge
Our most popular team building challenge, this Master Chef style event is fastpaced and fun. Teams compete to produce the best dish of the day. Our pantry includes a bounty of seasonal, high quality ingredients. To celebrate the team’s hard work, the whole group will sit down for a fantastic dining experience and enjoy the fruits of their labour. This format includes dessert, and is approximately 3 hours in duration.
For teams that want a bit more guidance, our Recipe Challenge could be the ultimate corporate team builder. All the competitive challenge of a Social Cooking event, all the fun and time pressure, but following a recipe to create a delicious meal. Way more fun than a normal cooking class! Challenging without being too stressful, and most definitely not boring. This challenge is great for even novice cooks.
This is our newest and most challenging format yet! Fast-paced and fully interactive, you’ll be part of a team tasked with creating an amazing dish using a range of surprise ingredients. The most creative execution wins! To celebrate the team’s hard work, the whole group will sit down for a fantastic dining experience and enjoy the fruits of their labour. This format includes dessert, and is approximately 3 hours in duration.
If you and your team are short on time this year, choose one of our 2 hour formats. Make your own dumplings, take the Burger Challenge or make your pizza from scratch. Try our Masterchef Risotto Challenge! Or for something a little different, how about a Dessert Challenge. Perfect for a morning or afternoon tea. We can also add on a cocktail or two to spice things up! Chat to our team today about how we can tailor a time efficient challenge for you. Guaranteed to be short on time, not on fun!

“The feedback from the team has been really positive, it blew the expectations of a lot of our team, but its all everyone’s been talking about since. Its strengthened a lot of already existing relationships amongst a lot of our peers given the structure and level of interaction and participation of the evening. And it was sooooo much fun, everyone came up to me afterwards and spoke about how they couldn’t stop smiling.“
– Daphne, Recycle Boutique
