The Cooking academy at Lane End
Unlike other team building solutions, cooking together has much broader appeal to everyone, united by a need to eat. Food has nostalgic associations with childhood and happy times, therefore people are more likely to feel relaxed. Cooking together and sharing in the fruit of each other's labour can create a deep connection between people. For that reason the act of cooking as a team becomes a useful tool in bringing people together.
Cooking is usually an activity reserved for personal space with family and friends. It is reminiscent of home life and therefore evokes a unique set of emotions leading to the breakdown of professional barriers between colleagues.
