Being on the cutting edge of team building is a hard job but someone has to do it. When we introduced TeamCuisine almost 15 years ago, cooking and team building were not the hit they are today. Foodies and non-foodies have enjoyed our cooking team building events and while I was putting together some testimonials, I thought that our clients can tell you about it better than I ever could. Thanks to all of you for some great events these last 15+ years!
“Everyone enjoyed the evening and thought the cooking was a blast. They really had a good time with it and we will do it again. Overall, it was very very positive and I thank you for pulling it all together at the last minute.”

“Your team did a fabulous job with the event, they actually handled the first hour on their own while we set the dining area. Our store directors had an amazing time and the meal was very good. Thank you for pulling this together so quickly…”

“The session was very well received — we had had a difficult afternoon and it turned the group’s mood around — I was also able to leverage it with a deeper debrief the next morning. I greatly enjoyed the set-up and Nadine’s “gentle support” to the teams during the session was helpful … it was very professional and not “tacky”.”
Brian – Johnson & Johnson
“We had a wonderful time! Facing a set of challenges that were very different than what we do 50-60 hours a week, we all learned different and surprising things about each other and I think everyone appreciated the new perspectives we now have on our colleagues. I think we’ll be a closer, better team for it. You were an excellent, low-key, firm, helpful leader with a great sense of humor. Thanks so much. Everyone wants to do it again – so we’ll be in touch!”
Lea – Public Broadcasting Systems
“I loved it! (As you probably knew I would.) Lessons learned:
– Everyone has something to contribute.
– There’s a lot of creativity and imagination in this group.
– Things run smoothly when we check our egos at the door.
– Where one person is weak (e.g. my artistic sense is non-existent), another is strong (thank you, January); we complement one another.
– Even a near-disaster can be rectified (cf. the dessert, which, BTW, was divine).
– Even when there’s something you dislike or of which you disapprove, if it’s a necessary element, you just shut up and accept it. (I know this is anathema, but I hate tarragon – it’s such a fussy herb – but that’s what our recipe called for. And a lot of other people – even people I respect! – like it.
– We can COOK!”

“It was a pleasure. We opened to rave reviews and I’m sure you’ll see us again!”
