A team could be put together temporarily or for a long term, in both cases improving communication and connection will improve the impact of your team. Playfulness is one of the best way to engage people together whether you analyze your team or just want to enhance its connections.

“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

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.
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.
