Tasty Team Building
The Gourmet Within in Matakana is putting a twist on corporate events with its smart dining approach to team building. Chef Mark Griffiths is fresh from 18 years teaching AUT students and has much experience in dealing with all levels of culinary ability. We also have a network of guest chefs we can bring in to ensure team sizes stay small –perhaps Jeremy Schmid from The Officer’s Mess in Takapuna, or chocolatiere Edith Mueller from Swiss Bliss.
A team building event with Chef Mark is always about using local, fresh Matakana produce to help your team achieve a restaurant-quality meal to be shared in our stylish private dining room. Activities can include wine tastings, archery or stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) – or even glass bead-making workshops.
All equipment and ingredients are provided, plus recipes, guidance and support to achieve a fantastic result for your investment. It shows in the feedback: “A great way to bring a group of people together with a common theme. All staff were friendly, helpful and supportive and did their utmost to ensure we got the most out of the time we had."
Kathryn Jansen is the event organiser and there’s nothing she likes more than to tailor an event that will work for you. Let her unleash the Gourmet Within your team!
