The Santa Fe School of Cooking and Cookin' Up Change, LLC have developed a new recipe that is guaranteed to get your team cookin’!

Just as a great meal is more than the sum of its ingredients, a high performance team is much more than the sum of its employees. 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.

"Cookin' Up Change is one of the rare team building companies that can actually tie their teachings to real world experiences."

—Ernie Kelsey, American Honda Motor Inc., CO

All of our programs are custom designed. We work with you to design a session based on the specific needs of your team.

A typical Cookin' Up Change program starts with a light breakfast and morning workshops. After lunch your team moves into the kitchen to prepare a gourmet dinner. During the meal we enjoy one another's company, debrief the day, and celebrate the team's accomplishments.

The ideal group size is from 8 to 28 people.

Light Teambuilding is the perfect addition to your corporate meetings planned 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!

The Team Cooking Experience can be a one or two day event. We hone team skills to enhance communication, collaboration, and effectiveness. Once in the kitchen, the teams use these tools to cook a gourmet meal.

The Santa Fe Scavenger Hunt is a great lead-in to the Team Cooking Experience. The team will visit and learn about 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.
