Don't just break bread, Make Bread with Hands on Cooking Team Building Events

While we specialize in corporate team building events in South San Francisco, hosting cooking parties and classes we want to make sure all of our guests feel like they are at home and comfortable making delicious food.  Coming out of the office and into the kitchen should a be fun and festive event.

At Add Thyme we make it easy for you and your team to create great meals while working together.  We help you by taking much of the grunt work out of the way for your cooking experience.  Need a cup of flour, a half cup of brown sugar, three quarters of a cup of oats, a quarter cup of pecans and a quarter teaspoon of salt no need to worry we will have all the ingredients you need out and measured and ready for you to create a tasty recipe.

Unsure of how to slice up a bulb of fennel, no worries we are there to guide you with hands on training to make sure you gain the technique to make yourself more efficient in the kitchen.  This hands on approach lets you and your team feel empowered by what they create.  I say you can often go out to eat and break bread. But when you gather your team and collectively make the bread, it brings out a whole new level of satisfaction and enjoyment.  The teamwork and participation of all to work together on a common goal is made all the better with a hearty and satisfying meal.  

Cooking together helps break down walls and creates a tangable and delicious experience for all involved. Contact us and let's create a good time and tasty event in our South San Francisco kitchen.

Summer is ending, but it doesn't mean an end to great food.

As we transition into shorter days we get to enjoy the beautiful bounty of what the longer days gave us.  Heirloom Tomatoes are at their peak right now, flavorful bundles of sunshine will fade into the fall sunset.  Juicy plums and nectarines won't be appearing in our fresh salads at Thanksgiving.  Our menus will be shifting from summer squash to the heartier butternut variety.  Thankfully we can always count on the immaculate organic produce from out local farmers here in The San Francisco Bay Area.

But we are a little bummed we will be missing the sweet corn from Brentwood, that makes for an amazing salad with a little feta cheese and toy box tomatoes, with a hint of mint and a little spice of roasted jalapenos.  Unfortunately these amazing seasonal items, remain just that.  The sweetness of their yellow kernels wont be enjoyed at our holiday parties in December, but don't worry there will be fresh fennel and plenty of citrus coming into season.

Our hands on cooking parties wont be delicately pulling the tops of of strawberries at corporate events in November.  No, we will fondly miss the fresh cherries that are already out of season in our desserts and fruit salads.  But will have the opportunity to use dried cherries to amp up the flavor of an freshly baked apple crisp come this fall and winter.  The transition of the season is more than just making a pumpkin spice pretzel.  The fall and winter gives us so much more.  There is probably no more traditional cooking season than the fall and winter in America.  It is hard to imagine a Thanksgiving table without a turkey on it.  But we look forward to putting spins on some of the classics and creating bold and flavorful dishes that our guests will love and enjoy making.

Our mission will always to deliver a great team building event with fantastic fun creating delicious creations no matter what the season.  We may miss the long kiss of the sun of the summer but we look forward to embracing the heartiness of all the fall flavors.

At Add Thyme we can help your team create a memorable, fun and delicious time.  Contact us and lets create something great.
