Looking for a challenge all your team can take part in?
Whether you’re planning an off-site, office or team activity, client entertainment, a birthday surprise or even a school reunion; whatever the occasion, Group Cooking Events at Cooks Academy are a perfect alternative day or evening out.
With us you will roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. Learn some new dishes; pick up culinary inspiration; chat about food, travel and leisure; but most of all have a rip roaring time.
We have a number of standard formats but we can tailor events to your preferences:
Chef Idol (for groups of 10 to 60) and Super Cook (for groups of 60 to 100) - our team based cookery events.
Global Gourmet - Supper Club - just about any ethnic cuisine you can think of.
Boardroom Bake-off - 2 hours of fun, baking sweet treats to scoff with us and take home
Feckin Tapas - Irish themed cookery experience
Grill Academy - Barbecue Masterclasses
Christmas Party - choose any of the above and we theme it with Christmas menus
(For groups of less than 10 we recommend joining one of our standard classes where you can work together at adjoining work stations).
Perfect for a fun evening or day out with a twist or great to see how competing business groups interact in a competitive environment for teambuilding or teambonding exercises.
The off site events range in duration from 2 hours to a full day and we have a range of menu options to choose from. We always cater for vegetarian and special dietary requirements.
"The team really enjoyed it from start to finish, the canapés & champagne on arrival are a lovely touch, the chef teaching the class is incredible. Highly recommend it as a team building event."

"We all had an absolutely brilliant time - I've gotten great feedback from the whole team, which is great news for me, since it was my idea and a bit of a gamble! A few people have even said they'd like take a proper course in the future - so well done to Jack, Simon, and all involved in the prep and planning"

"I just wanted to thank you so much on behalf of KPMG for such a brilliant afternoon on Friday! I have received countless compliments on organising “the best KPMG day out” but I know I cannot take the glory it was all you and your team! The chefs were all really excellent – so knowledgeable, friendly and great fun! I had Niamh on my table and she was particularly lovely! The food was really delicious, well done on selecting the perfect menu! And thank you for dealing so well with the power cut out – it was never an issue!"

"Big massive thank you to Vinny and Cormac and the staff at Cooks Academy, I can’t believe we were there for four hours - did not feel like it at all. The professionalism and passion you guys have for what you do is contagious. The feedback was that everyone loved the evening and want to sign up for some of your other classes too. Very happy customers"

We would be delighted to send you more information such as menu options and discuss with you, in more detail perhaps, your particular requirements or indeed the finer aspects of the event itself.
