Team building through cooking is an alternative to rope climbing, golf outings and treasure hunts. It is an enjoyable opportunity to bring together employees from various departments in your organization, create an experience for them to meet and to work together as a team, and produce immediate and tangible results.






Great cooking isn't about recipes—it's about techniques. In our classes you'll work with other students in a fun, hands-on environment led by our professional Chef instructors.


For nearly two decades, Viva Tastings has helped busy individuals and working professionals put the art of taste back in their meals. In the fast-paced city of Toronto, we’re all so busy trying to manage a work-life balance that one of the biggest compromises we make is with the quality of food we consume. Rather than surrendering to unhealthy habits and bland take-out, consider investing in the art of taste with flavourful chef-prepared meals from Viva Tastings.

Viva Tastings encapsulates the art of taste, living and bonding through delicious, good-for-you food. Our healthy, chef-prepared meals and hors d’oeuvres are made in small batches with the best local, organic and non-GMO ingredients, and are conveniently available for pickup or delivery to your home or office. Simply browse through our menu of healthy prepared foods and order online.

We also provide cooking classes at the Viva Tastings Kitchen to those who want to learn how to take control of their plate and prepare healthier options for themselves. Unlike many other cooking classes in Toronto, our trained chefs and instructors are firm believers that you don’t learn how to cook by following recipes. Instead, you learn through trial and error; tasting the food as you go and making adjustments along the way. Our classes focus more on developing techniques that you can confidently use in your own kitchen once all of the instructors are gone.

Cooking can be more than just a means to an end, however; it can actually be really fun! Companies that are either based in Toronto or visiting on business have often sought out Viva Tastings for corporate team building events. Not only is it something unique from the typical staff bonding exercises you come across these days, but it’s a great way to get employees motivated to communicate effectively and work together - especially when the end result is something they can eat!

At Viva Tastings, we believe there is always time for a good, flavourful meal. Join us for one of our many cooking classes each month or take advantage of the delicious and convenient options we have on our menu of healthy chef-prepared meals. If you have any questions about which options may be best for you, reach out to head chef and owner of Viva Tastings, Karen Viva-Haynes through our contact form, or by calling 416-578-2129 today.
