Cookery activities
We believe that food brings people together. As well as learning new cookery skills that they can try at home, cooking and sharing food together can help bring your team together and develop a greater connection with each other, increasing trust and team spirit.

All our events are hosted by experienced Cookery Leaders. We supply all equipment and ingredients and are fully insured. Our Community Kitchen includes space for you to sit and eat together and share your creations. Activities could include:

  • Creating homemade Italian pastas and sauces
  • Artisan bread baking
  • Biscuit or cake baking & decorating
  • ‘Pick and cook’ sessions which include activities at a local community garden
  • A range of world cuisines from sushi rolls to Indian banquets to Spanish tapas

Choose from the list above or if you have an idea talk to us and we’ll see if we can create something special for you and make a team experience to remember. Please enquire for details. Bespoke discounts offered on repeat bookings. Cookery School vouchers are also available as gifts and Employee Rewards.

What a wonderful way to end the week. We had a company team outing to the Community Kitchen and did the breadmaking course. We prepared wonderful breads, pizza’s soups, and side dishes all under the watchful eye of Anna and her fantastic team who taught us all how to do it. By the end of the day but had such good fun and we will definitely be going back next year. What a wonderful experience.

Gardening activities
There are over 75 community gardens in Brighton & Hove where people are growing food together – teams can help with everything from picking fruit & veg to satisfying larger jobs like building raised beds, clearing or planting. We run some gardens ourselves where we can host groups, or we can put you in touch with projects across the city.

Helping your community

We want everyone to experience the benefits of cooking and eating together. By paying to use the Community Kitchen, you help other people to attend cookery activities, regardless of finance, confidence or ability, and to make lasting changes to their lives.

About the space

Our kitchen was designed by Claire Potter, an interior architect and award-winning designer who specialises in sustainable design to ensure we reduce our environmental impact. Find out more about our facilities.
