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. 

By cooking together, teams can discover the ingredients for successful, effective performance. For example, if the goal is to work on problem-solving skills, participants could be given all of the ingredients for a recipe, but not all of the instructions. However, most groups prefer more loosely structured sessions to spend time together and have fun.
