What past participants are saying

I’ve been going to Team Buildings for 25 years and the Iron Chef event was by far the most fun one ever! The challenges, facility, and staff created a great atmosphere conducive to having fun with our team. Even the skeptics walked away saying ‘this was great.


Senior Director, Cisco

Our team was made up of emergency room staff, a mixed team of men and women who had very little cooking experience – but C’est si Bon! Cooking School came so highly recommended that we went for it anyway. We had such a great experience, and learned about the culinary arts along the way, too.


Event Coordinator, Duke Medical Center

Thanks so much for helping me put on a great event! The team was so ecstatic on Thursday afternoon and talked about it with other coworkers at our company offsite on Friday!
