WHY CHOOSE COOKING AS A TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITY?

Let’s take a 1-minute look at culinary history!

Late in the 19th century, following a French army career, gifted chef Georges-Auguste Escoffier, became the most celebrated chef in France as he published Le Guide Culinaire, which is still used as a major reference work, both in the form of a cookbook and a textbook on cooking.  He developed the modern “brigade” system in London’s Savoy Hotel as a way of organizing and dividing labor and talent in the commercial kitchen.

Escoffier understood that cooking and turning out multi-course, complex meals was a team effort that would require the sort of “all-in” mentality he’d seen on the battle field. What he knew about turning out a meal is what makes cooking one of the most sought-after team building activities for corporate America today. Escoffier knew that cooking is a team sport!
