Corporate Cookery Events & Team Building Activities
Ideally located in the heart of the city with abundant parking nearby, Exeter Cookery School provides a range of events, activities and courses aimed at team building in the corporate sector.
Team-building, client and staff incentives, meetings, events, business breakfasts, charity fund-raisers, awards ceremonies – you name it, we do it!
We’re fully licensed, so can host almost any event.
A Range of Events
Our fun and friendly corporate cookery events can be tailored to suit your working day and include full-day, half-day (morning or afternoon) and evening/after-work events.
- Team Building: Use cookery to hone your team’s efficiency and get them working like a Michelin-starred brigade.
- Chef Masterclass: Our chef demo’s several dishes and you get to watch and eat. The chef may be our very own Jim or a well-known local guest chef.
- Client & Staff Incentives: Want to reward your staff or treat a client? A cookery course is the perfect vehicle.
- Meetings: Hold your business meetings any time of the day in our converted 1830’s grade II listed quayside venue.
- Charity Fund-Raisers: We have the perfect space for your fund-raising event.
- Christmas or Leaving ‘Do’?: We’re licensed for alcohol and live music, so you can relax and let your hair down.
- Business Breakfast: Start your working day with a Full English or a Continental breakfast prepared by our chef, then conduct your meeting in fabulous surroundings with AV and free broadband.
- Awards Ceremonies: Our quirky former quayside warehouse provides a unique setting for your star-studded event.

Half Day & Full Day Corporate Cookery Events
- Cook & Dine: Two teams cook against each other, then get to enjoy the fruits of their labours around the dining table with a glass or two of wine.
- Team Cooking: A fun no-pressure day or half-day of cookery (meat/desserts/pasta/spun sugar/baking/bread, etc).
- Masterchef Experience: Good for small groups, a day or half-day of mildly competitive cookery.
- Bread Making: a day or half-day making – and eating – bread of all types.
- Wine & Food Pairing: A relaxed day or half-day cooking, eating, slurping and chilling!
- Spun Sugar Craft: A half-day creating fantastic spun sugar shapes.
- Chef & Knife Skills: A day or half-day of learning from our chef some top tips that will enhance your home cooking skills.
- The Apprentice-style Challenge: Two teams are each given a budget and ordered to plan, shop for and cook a menu of their devising – then they have to sell it!
- “Yes Chef!”: Be a restaurant chef for a day. Guided and encouraged by our chef you’ll run two kitchens restaurant-style. “Service please!”.
- The Ugly Veg & Leftovers Challenge: A relaxed mildly competitive day or half-day preparing and cooking leftovers and the ugly veg that supermarkets throw out.
- Cookery Relay: Two teams cook two three-course menus in 1hr 30mins. The catch is: one person from each team cooks for 20mins before handing it over to the next person to carry on – and there’s no conferring. Last one cooking finishes the dish. This is a tough one!
If all you want is a standard cookery course, then take advantage of our Group Incentive scheme: if there are six or more in your party you’ll receive a 10% reduction on total course fees.
