Corporate Teambuilding Cooking Classes

Our classes consist of preparing fun, yet delectable self prepared food from scratch.

The group is divided into teams, and each team is directed by a visiting chef. Classes are an excellent team-building activity, ice breaking and great entertainment.

Cooking Challenge

Our Cooking Challenge involves a scavenger hunt around the North End markets. Participants are given a set of hints.  They then shop for  ingredients and bring them back to Taranta to prepare dinner. Participants get to visit traditional stores and interact with local merchants.  Arrangements are made with store personnel, who will be expecting the group and will help them with their needs. Once the items are collected and the group returns to Taranta, a guest chef will verify that the ingredients are the correct ones. If they are not, the group has to go back and procure the proper ingredients. Once the group returns, a hands-on class begins.
