Team Building Activity - American Comfort Food

Make cozy, comforting dishes together while guided by an expert hand.

Dishes of classic Americana easily qualify as comfort food: they’re hearty, usually simple to make, and have that old-fashioned, headed-to-the-diner appeal that make them feel of a different era. Guided by Chef Douglas, you and your team will create elevated takes on nostalgic classics, like cream of mushroom soup, pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, and zucchini noodles, working together to prepare warm and filling entrées. At the end, you’ll finish off with a simple and delicious chocolate or lemon dessert, a perfect way to end a comforting evening of cooking, eating, and bonding with your team.

Note: Chef Douglas cooks with fresh, local and organic ingredients, when possible. Occasionally, certain products are not available. When this happens, Chef Douglas will substitute the ingredients or dish with something similar.

Was totally a lot fun! We had a great time and ate so much yummy food. The tips on where to get ingredients and the recipes were totally inspiring. Feel like I could replicate the food at home. Will definitely do this again!

Evening was wonderful. Douglas really knew what he was doing and I learned a lot --heard some things I had never heard before about cooking. He was very kind and the food was great. We made a lot of stuff. He gave us his email address and said if we email him he will give us the recipes. Really fun, full evening. Thanks Douglas and thank you to your partner for his friendliness and dish-washing!

I have over 30 years of professional restaurant and cooking experience, ranging from traditional French cuisine to organic vegetarian food. I had the good fortune to study with the founders of the French Laundry for ten years which helped create my philosophy about food. I believe food should be delicious, accessible, and straightforward to create. All my classes are designed to showcase a meal students can go home and create for a dinner party or for friends.
