Our great live Zoom cookery experiences are the ideal way to get a group together and enjoy some virtual fun without having to leave the house. We offer experiences for small (even one-to-ones) groups to encourage open discussions to large groups up to 100 at a time. We will recommend the best format for your group to ensure that everyone gets the most from their experience and enjoys the ideal mix of learning and fun.
We supply a Caldesi box of ingredients* to each participant before the event and you can also ‘pimp’ your box by adding some Italian foodie gifts such as handmade chocolates, panettone, Prosecco, Italian wines and liqueurs or why not encourage their cooking skills and treat them to a signed Caldesi cookbook, a professional cook’s knife, olive wood chopping board or parmesan grater?
*some (not many) fresh ingredients will need to be sourced by participants to guarantee freshness.
Experiences last between 1.5 hours and 2.5 hours and can be booked for a date and time to suit your needs. Starting at just £65 per person (includes ingredient box and delivery) our experiences are ideal for remote team building, corporate entertainment, friends and family treats, hens and stag events – any event where you want to treat a group to an imaginative event without having to meet up in person.
