Weve Gone Virtual

Cookery Team Building

Bringing People Together 

We are now running virtual cookery team building events which include virtual event boxes being delivered direct to your guests homes.  Delegates will have a virtual event package delivered direct to their home with the specialized ingredients, hat, apron, useful foodie charts and keepsake (until end of August).   Guests will simply log in and join their colleagues and one of our Chefs for a fun and inspiring cookery team building activity.  Team Building has never been so easy and appealing to organize, you dont even need to book a venue and your staff can stay at home and log in.  Companies are keen to book events to raise spirits, boost morale and give staff a platform to connect where they can learn new skills.  Cooking and Baking has taken Britain By storm in the last couple of months.  More people are now cooking from scratch and have developed a love for cooking as they have reaped the therapeutic efffects and health and nutritional benefits from home cooking.

Cookery Team building is more important now than ever

We warmly welcome you, your team and clients to join us for fun cookery classes for team building and corporate entertainment.  Hosted by  Michelin star chefs in our pop-up cookery school and now virtually.  Our cookery and networking experiences are designed to create and build new working relationships within teams, departments and networking platforms for new business opportunities and maintain client relationships.  Our dedicated award-winning Chefs have worked in the finest establishments including Relais and Chateaux Hotel’s and alongside the some of the most renowned celebrity chefs in the country, including Michel Roux Junior, Marco Pierre White, Brian Turner, Jason Atherton, Lorraine Pascal and Lesley Waters.

Cooking and relationships are integral to our way of life.  If we’ve had a good day we cook.  If we’ve had a bad day we bake; in short, we love food, love people and love to cook!  For us it’s a huge privilege for to see confidence and trust growing within teams as everyone involved gets to know each other.  Our Cook and Dine events create opportunities for new business relationships to develop and prosper.

Why not capture imagination, inspire innovation, encourage corporate social responsibility, and entertain in a fun and memorable way with Hartley’s Events?   You can book with full confidence.  We are endorsed and recommended by some of the leading companies in the UK as a 100% trusted, reputable, family run company specialising in the corporate market and now in our thirteenth year.

Tell us what’s important to you and we will cook up a unique experience for your occasion.  Our friendly event managers and chefs are readily available to compile the best possible event for you now.
