Christmas party cookery challenge; The Great British Bake Off

Put on your apron, and grab a wooden spoon, it’s time to ready, set, bake!

The Great British Bake Off is well and truly back on our screens, and needless to say, we’re absolutely hooked. So far, we’ve witnessed the hopeful bakers get stuck into cake mix, biscuits, bread dough, and batter, to produce an array of technical, signature, and showstopping bakes.

Though competitive as ever, it is lovely to see the contestants bond through their love of baking and food, to form genuine friendships with one another. This is something we are very keen to promote in our team building days at The Cookery School at Braxted Park, and so we invite you to embark on a Great British Bake Off challenge for your 2016 Christmas Party.

This is the perfect opportunity to get away from the office and cook up a storm with your colleagues in the ultimate baking masterclass.

Hosted in our top of the range kitchens, the Bake Off challenge will begin with a short introduction and demonstration from one of our award winning chefs. Each team will be assigned to a workstation and provided with all the necessary equipment and ingredients to battle it out against the clock, and create a sumptuous array of treats.

The Bake Off challenge is suitable for all colleagues, and we’re happy to work with you to plan a bespoke menu, which can be tailored to accommodate to individual dietary requirements. Alternatively, leave the planning up to us!

Our expert chefs will be on hand to give tips and advice, so that everyone can work confidently to achieve a selection of delicious bakes that Mary Berry herself would be proud to taste.

Our chef will judge each category, awarding points for creativity, skill, taste, and presentation in order to crown the star baker team. The judging may not be as harsh as Paul Hollywood’s, but we definitely won’t allow for any soggy bottoms!

To wind up the day, everyone can tuck into the goods, either in the dining room, or outside in the picturesque walled gardens of Braxted Park Estate.

This exciting, hands-on cooking experience will improve your team's confidence, communication and leadership skills. If you’d like to find out more, please contact us today.
