Using Cooking to Promote Organizational
Cookin' Up Change and the internationally acclaimed Santa Fe School
of Cooking have developed a new recipe that is guaranteed to get
your team cookin!
as a great meal is more than the sum of its ingredients, a high
performance team is much more than the sum of its participants. Our
kitchen mimics the pressures of today's fast-paced work environment.
We use cooking as a way to encourage and improve collaborative effort
and team learning to create a synergistic learning experience.
Team Cooking Experience
The Team Cooking Experience can be a one or two day event. Prior
to the event, individual participants complete a CUChange
questionnaire. We use this information to custom design your
program. Before entering the kitchen we organize a series of
activities and workshops that hone team skills to enhance
communication, collaboration, and effectiveness. Once in the
kitchen, the teams find themselves challenged to use these tools.
Light Teambuilding is the perfect addition to your corporate meetings
held in Santa Fe. Spend a half-day session with us and get your
group working, laughing, and talking together while producing a
traditional southwestern meal!
Santa Fe Scavenger Hunt
The Santa Fe Scavenger Hunt is a great lead-in to the Team Cooking
Experience. The team will visit and learn about historic Santa Fe while gathering
crucial resources for creating a gourmet meal later in the day.
The Scavenger Hunt focuses on team planning, effective use of resources,
leadership, and recognition of team and individual accomplishments.
Team Cooking Programs are offered at the Santa
Fe School of Cooking,

school specializing in foods of the Southwest. The internationally
acclaimed school has been featured in numerous publications
including the New York Times and Business Week, as well as being
