Corporate Team Building Events

A Tasty Way to Say Thank You

Looking for something different for your next corporate event or team building day? Show your appreciation to special clients/vendors, reward employees when goals are met, or provide an offsite activity for meetings with a private hands-on cooking class. We regularly offer corporate group and client appreciation classes in Redondo Beach.

Food Brings People Together to Foster Team Building Skills

How about something new on the menu for team-building? Bowling is out, unless you mean putting soup in a bowl. Not only will the cooking class be fun, delicious, and a learning experience, but group cooking classes generate creativity and develop camaraderie. Our hands-on cooking classes improve communication and cooperation among team members, while allowing them to participate in a way around problem solving tasks and better listening skills far better than in the usual office environment.

Thank you so much, everyone is still talking about how great the event was.  I really appreciate your efforts to accommodate our group!

Corporate Team Building

Annette is a great teacher and an awesome chef. Our team building class was an amazing experience. Regardless of your cooking experience, she makes cooking fun and educational. The dinner and dessert we made were fantastic and I would definitely recommend her services.

It was an enjoyable class in a no-stress environment. I am new to cooking and Chef Annette made sure the group was engaged no matter what their level of experience.

Group Size
For hands-on cooking classes, we can accommodate a maximum of 14 people comfortably for a hands on class.

Class Experience
Class lasts between 2½ and 3 hours, which includes prep/cooking/eating. We supply aprons to use during the class.

Food and Beverage
We offer a variety of seasonal or ethnic menus/meals, tapas, and appetizers. We always have plenty of food (beyond just tasting). Enjoy! Sorry but we cannot accommodate separate meals for people with food aversions, intolerances, and allergies.

Once you’ve committed to a date and payment is made, menu selections will be sent/discussed depending on your taste selection. Some menus are only workable for smaller groups we will discuss options with you.

We supply soft drinks and water. Wine or beer may be brought in. No hard alcohol permitted. For safety reasons, wine or beer can only be served with the meal. There is no drinking of alcohol prior to the class; anyone who is inebriated will be asked to leave with no refund given.

Our minimum is $1250 for 1-10 attendees, with an additional cost of $125 per person above 10. If the number of attendees increases after initial payment, please notify us ASAP. Our staff works extra hard for your enjoyment and always appreciates tips.

Payment must be made in full to reserve your space. Once you agree to a date/time, we will send an invoice for your group. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. There are no refunds or credits (see below).

No refunds or credits once commitment of payment has been received.

In the case of a cancellation, it is up to SBSOC management whether to reschedule (with a $100 re-booking fee). When you make your reservation, we schedule staff and potentially turn away other business.

Dress Code
SBSOC uses a working kitchen. Please tell your guests to wear comfortable closed toe shoes (NO SANDALS or HIGH HEELS), tie long hair back, and no blouses with billowing sleeves or scarves. Aprons will be provided during class.

Classroom Rules
The class begins on time. Please urge participants to show up promptly. Late comers will miss part of the experience/recipes and cause the class to have to rush to try and finish on time. There is no waiting for people to show up or make up what they missed.

Our classes are taught in a communal fashion. After cooking, plating and garnishing, you sit down and eat as a group and discuss your challenges and successes. Participants can take recipes home.

Please do not linger after class so our staff can clean up and close on time.

We appreciate your cooperation.
