Food is the universal language, and nothing brings people together better than cooking! We enjoy new experiences, learning new techniques and relationship building.
It’s been a busy month with two convivial non-competitive cooking events – in Boston and New York. The business is hard work – we wanted to deliver fun and get to know each other outside of the norm of portfolio reviews and meetings. The smiles in the photos are real. Cooking and parties are fun.
When the daily grind starts grating on your nerves, a change of activity is in order. The novelty of cooking as a group stimulates the brain and these events feed the hunger. Everyone gets a chance to decompress and recharge.
Great fun to step back from the mundane workday and gain new perspective on communication, cooking skills and creative problem-solving.
Standby for your invite! Coming soon to Chicago and Los Angeles!
