Cambridge Cookery builds bespoke cookery events for all kinds of teams, as informal, competitive or unusual as you like. Tell us what you want to get out of the day, and we will create the perfect day for your team.

Preparing and eating food together is the perfect way to bring people together, to wind-down and to build strong teams. Cambridge Cookery builds bespoke cookery events for teams, making them as informal, competitive or unusual as you like. We tailor our level of involvement according to your wishes, just tell us what you want to get out of the event, and we will create the perfect day for your team. From the moment you step through our door and don your aprons to when you leave after a delicious meal, we provide seamless service. While you sip a glass of bubbly or enjoy a piece of homemade cake, we guide you through making pasta, bread baking, sushi, fish filleting or whatever you have chosen to do, while our team clears away and lays a beautiful table for you to sit down and enjoy the session’s creations.

Alternatively, if you’d prefer for us to cook for you, our kitchen is the perfect private dining environment. With only the very best ingredients, equipment and Scandinavian tableware, there’s a real sense of elegance and contemporary luxury to eating at Cambridge Cookery.

We also provide a private space away from the office for important meetings and will supply homemade pastries, cakes, lunch, afternoon tea or supper.

Beacon Planning celebrated their 8th birthday with us enjoying a competitive Bake Off in the morning and a Souk Food Master Chef session in the afternoon. Read their account of the day here.

“Thank you so much to Cambridge Cookery. It has been so long since we’ve been able to do a team building event together – so long in fact that almost half the team is new! Over the years we’ve tried a range of things and I can honestly say that this event was the best and most successful we’ve ever done. It isn’t easy to please everyone and I don’t think we’ve ever done a team building session that was so well liked across the whole team. The session was really well organised, you made us feel very welcome and created an atmosphere in which we could relax, have some fun and spend some really important social time together! Of course, the food was delicious and there was plenty of it! I hope we can bring our team back soon.”

“Great team-building afternoon! Our team loved getting messy making fresh pasta and learnt some new recipes – all topped off with a delicious three course meal. Lovely accommodating staff and a great relaxed atmosphere.”

“We recently hosted our annual team building event at the Cambridge Cookery School and had a blast! We had a competition similar to The Great British Bake Off. It was great to see the team so engaged and working together. The cookery school is very clean and modern looking. The staff are super helpful and made the Bake Off a very memorable experience. We made so much food we took it back to the office. If you book an event, make sure that you have a place to store all the food you will make/bake, i.e. don’t plan a punting trip directly afterwards. I would definitely recommend the Cookery School to other businesses or large groups looking for something fun and engaging to do together.”

“We visited Cambridge Cookery school for a colleague’s leaving do. As a keen baker, I wanted to give her an experience suited to her passion, rather than just another team meal out. As a team of 8 we baked our own pizzas followed by chocolate brownies and madelines. It was such fun. The class was well organised, all equipment laid out and ready when we arrived. Our teacher was great, striking just the right balance between teaching and guiding us, vs. allowing us to play and have fun. It was great to make our own food and then sit down together and enjoy it. My colleague absolutely loved it. We all did. It also worked really well as a great team building exercise.”
