Virtual Corporate + Team-Building Events

THE DETAILS

A virtual cooking experience is a fantastic hands-on activity and ice-breaker for colleagues or clients who don’t share a common workspace. To boot, everyone enjoys a home-cooked meal at the end!

We can ship your guests ingredient kits* ahead of time, or you can opt to send participants a shopping list, depending on your budget.

Our top-notch chef-instructors are engaging and fun, allowing everyone to learn a few new culinary skills while also bantering with one another.

Each 90-minute virtual class culminates in a fully prepared meal to eat + enjoy. If you prefer a shorter event (30- or 60-minutes), we are happy to customize).

PRICING

Up to 10 households: $650
Up to 20 households: $750
Up to 30 households: $850

For larger groups, please add $100 for each additional 10 people.

*INGREDIENT KITS

To save your guests a trip to the supermarket, let us send the ingredients to them! Ingredient kits are $75/household (includes S&H and enough food for 4 people), and are available for these menus the menus on the right with an *: Gnocchi, Risotto, Tacos, Sushi, Shakshuka, Indian, Pizza, Bagels, Pie, Candy, and Cookies. See what’s inside each ingredient kit.

WELLNESS WORKSHOP: “What to Eat + Why?”

Looking for a culinary option that doesn’t require your guests to be in their kitchens? Consider offering our popular food education + wellness workshop: “What to Eat + Why?” where HCNY founder Jennifer Clair guides participants through every aisle of the supermarket and explains how to choose the best foods from each section. Take a peek at the full curriculum. This seminar can be 60 or 90 minutes. $650 flat rate for all group sizes, with plenty of time for Q&A.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

All classes are hosted via Zoom, and we will provide the link (or we can join you on your preferred platform).

Your chef-instructor will have 2 camera angles spotlighted during the cooking class — 1 trained on their lovely face + 1 on their cutting board station + stovetop — so participants will be able to see everything they’re doing without having to switch views. Guests will ask questions directly to the chef-instructor, and our classes are designed to be very interactive.

WHAT TO EXPECT

  1. CHOOSE a MENU: See menu options (on right) with short and adaptable ingredient lists for people with a variety of diets.
  2. RECEIVE a SHOPPING LIST: After you choose a menu, you’ll be sent a shopping list to forward to your guests, or you can opt to have us mail an Ingredient Kit (see above) to each participant.
  3. CONNECT with your INSTRUCTOR: At the time of booking, we’ll send you a unique Zoom link to share with your group (or you can host us on your own platform), so everyone can connect with the instructor at the appointed time.
  4. GET READY to COOK: Remind everyone to have out all their ingredients and equipment before the class begins, as well as washing any vegetables (and hands too!).
  5. ENJOY your time together in the kitchen!
