Team building



Get to know your colleagues in this amazing workshop.

Are you coming to Asheville for a conference?

Is your company based in Asheville?

Are you looking for a special activity for your business?

“My company wanted to do something different for a team building event and decided to try  Ofri’s Home Cooking. 

Who doesn’t enjoy a home cooked meal?

We have a good mix of men and woman and what a blast!

Ofri made numerous suggestions for a menu for us to vote on and was prepared when we arrived.

Her home was very inviting, big enough for all of us and we also had a short meeting afterwards.

The food was delicious!  The recipes were detailed and Ofri was around to help and answer any questions.

There were enough recipes and things to do to keep everyone busy and get their hands dirty!

Since we had so much fun, I am bringing my office staff back for our Holiday party.

I highly recommend this for a date night, employee appreciation or team building.” Sue, Byada Asheville

On-site and off-site events

Below you can find some ideas for our cooking events. We can work with you to create other events, if this is not what you are looking for.

Cooking together is a lost pursuit we aim to bring back, there is no better way to connect people to one
another in a fun engaging atmosphere, than cooking together.
The groups could vary in size, depending mostly on the space that is available.
We offer the events described below at our kitchen which is limited to 30 people.
Most events are between 2-4
hours, depending on the program.
The same programs can take place at your hotel or other local event space.

The setup is competition style. Initially there are some ice breaking activities, trivia and general
introduction. Judges are nominated within the entire group.
For larger events I can also hire a professional MC and other chefs if needed.
Prizes for the winning team can also be included in the quote.

Corporate cooking challenge options:
Hot/Cold Tapas
Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers or snacks commonly found in Spanish cuisine that are meant to share
with good friends and a good glass of wine! Once teams are formed through a series of exciting icebreakers,
they will each prepare hot and cold tapas for the judges to taste. Ingredients along with recipe will be
provided which encourages teambuilding and fosters communication. Teams are judged by taste,
presentation and teamwork, and once the winners are crowned, guests can feast on the delicious tapas
they created.

Foodie Truck
Food trucks have become an American staple in recent years, so we’re bringing them right to the dining
table and incorporating an element of competition! Once teams are formed through a series of group ice
breakers, they will further be divided into those preparing the food truck fare and those who design the food
truck brand name and logo. Teams will be judged on the taste of their product and the creativity and
originality of their truck façade and logo. Once the winners are crowned, team members are free to roam
from truck to truck and feast on the delicious dishes prepared by each group!

Iron Chefstyle
group cooking competition
In this fast-paced team building activity, guests are divided into large teams and face off in a timed culinary
competition. With Chef Ofri and our staff as culinary coaches, teams are challenged to create delicious
dishes from scratch. When the clock runs out, each team presents their creation to the judge and then
enjoys the feast they created. Teams are judged on presentation, taste and teamwork, and the team with
the highest overall score will be crowned the winners.

meal competition
Inspired by current and classic culinary trends from around the world, this challenge is composed with
fresh, farm to table ingredients and exciting culinary techniques. Chef Ofri and the staff will provide hands-on
instruction and support as your group works together to craft their fourcourse
meal. Through culinarytrivia and exciting icebreakers, we’ll divide the group into teams where each team will prepare recipes fromthe selected menu. At the end of the cooking segment, everyone will enjoy the feast they created while our
staff serves them at the table in courses.

Wine & Cheese
Who doesn’t love wine and cheese? This program kicks off with an energizing icebreaker that will form your
group into teams, each team will compete for points through a series of fun wine and cheesethemed
culinary trivia. When they reach a certain point value, they will be invited to select their wines, cheese and
fruit pairings. Creativity and communication flows as team members find themselves working as a cohesive
unit, attempting to earn the most points and outscore
their competition. All the participants leave as
“winners,” however, getting the chance to network with other teams and sample wines and cheeses from
other stations as the event draws to a close.
