Virtual Cookery & Tasting Experiences

How will it work?

Attendees will have a luxury box delivered direct to their home with the specialized ingredients, hat, apron, useful foodie charts and keepsake.  Guests will simply log in and join their colleagues and one of our Chefs for an inspiring cookery activity.

What will your company get for their money in one of our virtual cookery & tasting experience?

We have added lots of value to our virtual cookery experiences.  We thrive on fantastic feedback and want you to come back and book lots more.   As an additional booking incentive  from now until the end of August we will be including a useful cookery keepsake which guests will use on the event and can then keep and reuse afterwards.

Possibilities in business are endless, and business is always about relationships


Questions you may have?

How much lead time is required?

As much as possible, these types of events require more planning and logistics than normal events.  Contracts will need to be signed at least 4 weeks prior to the live event.

Food going to guest’s homes, – how does that work?

Food will be sent in sealed ice bags and temperature controlled within the boxes in line with food and hygiene legislation.

What about sending parcels to guest’s homes?

We will require addresses to be available 2 weeks before the event as a minimum, and earlier if possible.   The organizer will then be given login details to upload addresses themselves for the parcel delivery.

Which courier service will we be using?

We have chosen DPD for deliveries but will consider other services.  DPD take photos of parcels to confirm delivery as an alternative to signing for them because of corona virus.


Imagine, Contemplate, Success   –  The format of the Virtual Cookery Experiences

Virtual Cookery Team Building

If your company want to book  a team building event cooking is one of the preferred ways to connect virtually.   We can look at incorporating chat rooms depending on the event.   Chocolate making is the most suitable to incorporate a team challenge and if you are looking for competitive fun with foodie challenge’s we recommend the Culinary Games.

Virtual Cook A Long

In Cook A Longs your guests will learn new cookery skills with one of our leading chefs.  We guarantee to lift the spirits, boost team morale, and give a fun cookery platform where guests can reconnect and have fun together.  Give them a grilling, turn up the heat, and add a competitive element, our chef will then score on presentation and creative use of ingredients  We believe there is nothing more therapeutic than cooking something from scratch and seeing amazing results.   Cooking is good for soul and mental well-being; it brings a high reward of self-satisfaction.  Cooking sustainably is also high on our agenda and we are continuously looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprint and introducing cooking with plant foods where we can.
