The Biltmore Culinary Academy Team Building

The Miami Biltmore Hotel offers adult culinary programs, a great team building activity to enhance group dynamics.

Team Building Class

Combining the best elements of a cooking class, cocktail party and a team building outing, this event will strengthen group and corporate relationships together by creating a team challenging, yet fun environment similar to a restaurant team preparing and executing an hors d’oeuvres menu. This unique activity challenges team members to work together in cohesion, providing a perfect balance between conventional team building activities and a delicious hors d’oeuvres to share between group members.

Whether you are looking for a fun and delicious activity to take part with coworkers or creating an unique experience in the middle of a conference in Miami, the Biltmore Culinary Academy's Corporate Team Building Class is a truly unforgettable experience in a unique workshop atmosphere.

Enhancing Group Dynamics

Our approach to creating wonderful team challenges begins with talking to workshop leaders to find out how team members will respond to our workshop situations. Afterwards, we will work with workshop leaders to develop and enhance our culinary experience to fit each unique group setting. Our chefs then take over and create culinary scenarios that are perfectly blended to strengthen team relationships. The result is a wonderful team building experience that will leave both team members and workshop leaders with an experience unlike any other.
