Team Building Through Sustainable Food

Corporates can embrace initiatives like renewable energy, organic, local and sustainably sourced produce through customised courses.

Team Building Through Sustainable Food

"Sustainability sits at the very essence of the Cookery School ethos. We are firm believers in reducing our footprint through food."
Rosalind Rathouse

While all Cookery School at Little Portland Street events are run with sustainability front of mind, now the school are taking it one step further with a sustainable event package. This customised course combines the confidence-building cooking of a Cookery School corporate event with a unique look at the environmental issues affecting our food today.  Cookery School holds a Three Star Rating – the highest possible rating – from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), and has done since 2012, making it London’s most sustainable cookery school!

Attendees will create delicious dishes that minimise waste and use less meat, while learning about sustainability concepts such as carbon footprints, sourcing ingredients and seasonality. It’s a very ‘hands on’ event that’s informative, interactive and full of wonderful tips and tricks for your team to take away.

With sustainability becoming more important to businesses across the UK, now’s the time to see it in action! Visitors will learn how small changes can make a huge difference, arming themselves with the knowledge and skills to take best practice back into the workplace and home.

As with all corporate events at the Cookery School, your team will be welcomed with a drink and nibbles, before being divided into groups to start cooking. At the end, everyone will sit down to feast, accompanied by a glass of sustainable wine.  Personalied menus will be created which celebrate sustainable practices, with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients.
