The Cookery School
Located on Little Portland Street, The Cookery School offers a plethora of teambuilding activities in which groups can work together to create either threeor four-course menus.
The School recently launched its bake-off competition package, giving participants the chance to conjure up scones, profiteroles and cupcakes to win small prizes. Corporate team-building activities are available for groups of eight to 50 delegates.
Food and drink-themed experiences at Mr Fogg's include the Tipsy Tea, hosted in the venue's drawing-room. Delegates can enjoy Hendrick's gin and Veuve Clicquot Rich Champagne teas, as well as tea-infused cocktails served in teapots, along with sandwiches, Victoria sponge, meringue tarts and macaroons. The venue's Hendrick's Botanical Garden, which was launched in May, will also be available to hire for teambuilding activities and can hold up to 30 delegates seated.
London Barbecue School
The London Barbecue School has been operating for the past five years, but this summer it opened the doors to its fixed BBQ facility in Peckham, in the south of the capital. Delegates can take part in a five-hour barbecue masterclass, get to grips with butchery or create their own sausages in a variety of teambuilding activities. Prices start at £65 per person for a group of ten.
Bompas & Parr
Food and drink alchemists Sam Bompas and Harry Parr's latest installation, the Alcoholic Architecture, will be available for adventurous teambuilding groups until January 2016. The meteorology and mixology experience at Borough Market's One Cathedral Street allows guests to be immersed in a walk-in cloud of breathable cocktail, as well as the chance to quaff from a human skull. Between two and 40 delegates can take part each hour.
Cannon & Cannon Meat School
The recently refurbished culinary institute near London Bridge has two options for corporate teambuilding groups, including tasting workshops for between 12 and 25 delegates.
An expert host will lead discussions about cured meat, pairings and flavour profiles. Hands-on experiences for six to ten participants are led by experienced butchers or charcutiers, involving safe practices with knives as well as the opportunity to cure and butcher a variety of meats.
