Bake-off Competitions

A corporate bake-off  is the perfect way to introduce a little competition into your next team-building event. We offer both an introductory and master bake-off menu, catering for every skill level.

After a welcome drink and nibbles, the group will be divided into teams to bake under the watchful eye of our experienced teachers. They will then judge the results and small prizes will be awarded. Once the formalities are over, the whole group will sit down to enjoy their hard work with tea, coffee or bubbly, with anything that’s not devoured can be taken away to be eaten in the office. If you have limited time or budget, do let us know and we will try to tailor something to suit.

*NEW - Austrian Strudel Challenge - £140 pp plus VAT

What better way to spend three hours than by making strudel.

This beautiful 17th Century Austrian dessert is best when people are pulling the dough against one another which makes it the perfect recipe for team building and working together.

In this new team building session the Viennese strudel is the star of the show when it comes to finessing your pastry skills by working together to create layer upon layer of the finest dough encasing a sweet seasonal fruit filling.

On arrival at Cookery School you’ll enjoy a glass of Austrian wine and nibbles before breaking into teams to make your strudel.
