Cookery Challenge

Your team will arrive to a continental breakfast, tea, coffee and fruit juices, whilst we brief your group on the day’s events.  

Once the group is split into teams, each will receive a cash budget, a list of ingredients and the challenge to source product and ingredients, whilst negotiating the best price from market traders and retailers in the local area. Points are awarded for fastest team to return to the school, best prices sought for their ingredients and the best quality of the produce they have chosen.

To be the top team they will also have to cook like a professional chef (with the guidance of our chefs!), and all against the clock to avoid the wooden spoon.

The group will sit down to the main course they will have prepared and a dessert we’ll surprise them with whilst we award the winners ‘Cookery Challenge Champions’.

Please note, all tuition, shopping budget, ingredients, dining and drinks (optional wine, beer & soft drinks) are included in the cover charge – you just need to arrive with an appetite for fun and good food at Brighton Cookery School, we’ll take care of the rest.

Starting from £70p/p

Please note all our prices are subject to VAT.

Please inform us of any dietary requirements in your group when booking.

It was so much fun! The entire team were brilliant, very informative and always on hand to help. I wanted to ensure I gave a personal thank you as we added the extra challenge of being vegans! This was no problem for the team, however, who allowed us to still come along and provided us with a full range of alternative vegan ingredients to make the pasta! They really went over and above!

It was so much fun!

Thinking of exciting activities isn’t easy when you have to do it 4 times a year. Brighton Cookery School was recommended to me, so I decided to give it a shot. The team loved it! So different to the usual karting etc. They haven’t stopped talking about it since and a couple of them even have plans to revisit with their partners. Ben is a great host/teacher. He’s very knowledgeable and makes the session interactive and educational. We were sent the recipes after the session so we can impress family and friends with our new found cooking skills. Overall, an amazing evening. I’d recommend this to anyone, whether it’s a stag/hen, or a team building activity. Book it!

Great Team Activity

Brighton cookery school is a fantastic, fun way to spend an evening learning to cook quality food (and drinking wine) taught by local food legend- Chef Messa Ben. Trés bon!
