Team Building - Instructional Cooking Events

Where does everybody congregate at a party? In the kitchen! Nothing brings people together better than food. Team building events at Midway offer a casual environment where people can get to know one another better while discovering new skills, and new ways to collaborate. Unlike team building events which require athleticism, our private cooking classes are events where everyone can participate. Even people who may not be comfortable in the kitchen will be comfortable at Midway with the expert guidance of our talented chefs.

How it works:

The event was fantastic! Everyone raved, and our Managing Partner, Reid Phillips, loved it. It was engaging, intimate, lively, so much fun—and educational and delicious, of course. Plus you were patience with us, even when we couldn’t manage to make 4 teams of 5 (lawyers). It is really a perfect experience. Can’t wait ‘til next year!
— Gail E. Cutter, Director of Recruiting & Professional Development, Brooks Pierce

Guest mingle while having a glass of wine/beer and snacks. Once everyone has arrived, they'll gather in the kitchen with the chef and lead instructor to learn about the food they'll be preparing. Then the cooking starts! All skill levels are able to participate and we'll stretch them a bit by getting them to learn new methods or try new things. They'll work together to create the meal and then sit down to enjoy the fruits of their efforts. It's always fun and really allows people to get to know each other outside of the work environment.
