Culinary Teambuilding - Onsite

0 mi. away
Our main goal for a Culinary Team Building program is to create an atmosphere of teamwork and camaraderie among the participants, to have FUN and most of all be able to relate to fellow colleagues in a more “appetizing” way. Meal Preparation Once the teams are at their designated stations, the Chef and assistants will provide a cooking demonstration that involves a selected menu item. The Chef will include some group participants to take part in the demonstration. Then the prep begins! During the preparation, our Chef and assistants will be moving about the room to assist when necessary. Upon completion of the meal preparations, the food is plated or set as a buffet, and the Chef will begin a de-briefing. De-Brief The Chef will de-brief with the participants by asking if they accomplished the goals and objectives expected of them. They will also discuss working in a new capacity as a team and the evolution of a team leadership for this experience. Introduction Get to know the Executive Chef and the staff. They will take a few minutes to explain what happens, how it happens and who is involved. Learn something new, introduce a whole new way of interacting with one another, listen to instructions and work together to produce a certain product. Objectives • Work as a team toward a common goal • Skillfully interact with other members of the group • Have fun and be creative • Create a feeling of accomplishment • Build better relationships with fellow colleagues • Strategize as a team on how to produce the product (goal) set forth • Focus on leadership (group leadership) rather than having a specific leader How It Works The Executive Chef divides the group into teams and sends each team to their appropriate stations, where there is an example of what the finished product should look like. The time line, safety, and proper sanitation will also be addressed at this time.

Historic Cape Henry

Historical Landmark
30 minutes away
Today, the old Cape Henry Lighthouse silently guards the entry way into the Chesapeake Bay. Standing near the spot where in 1607 Captain Newport raised a cross to offer thanks for their safe crossing of the Atlantic, the Lighthouse is opened to the public on a seasonal schedule. The architectural integrity of the tower is representative of one of John McComb's best and most important constructions. The Light also symbolizes the first bold steps the nation's new government took to fulfill its obligations to its people. With the construction of the Cape Henry Lighthouse, the waters of the Chesapeake Bay became navigable and safe ensuring steady trade and commerce on the Virginia and Maryland coasts. There had been a need for a lighthouse since before the Revolution. The Colony of Virginia and then the state of Virginia could never raise the funds needed to build the structure. By November 1789, the Virginia General Assembly provided conveyance of the land "lying and being in the County of Princess Anne at the place commonly called the head land of Cape Henry" to the new government "for the purpose of building a lighthouse." Alexander Hamilton contracted with John Mc Comb, Jr. of New York on 31 March 1791. Mc Comb had been the designer of the Government House, the planned residence for the President, in New York City.
