Corporate team building events allow for larger groups to take advantage of the UCook experience. During these events, our Chef will prep most of the food before guests arrive. The Chef can have a maximum of 10 guests help with the final preparation. This will include chopping, dicing, mixing and cooking of the scrumptious dishes they will be eating. All our classes include 4 to 6 courses for your enjoyment.
You may bring your own beverages including, soda, wine, beer and mixed drinks. UCook provides water, ice, wine openers, bottle openers and glasses for beer, margaritas, wine, martinis and cocktails.
Our showroom is transformed into the perfect atmosphere with mood lighting, candles and music. A real wood fireplace can be used with any advanced request. We supply Pandora for our multi-speaker music system. You are encouraged to set the music mood for your event, and we encourage our guests to decorate for any special occasion.
UCook is open Monday thru Saturday 9:00am to 5:30pm or by appointment to decorate or drop off your beverages, presents and cakes in advance. This is especially helpful when the event is a surprise.
UCook is not work. UCook is a fun, engaging and exciting way to laugh, joke, mingle and enjoy the unique UCook experience with family, friends or co-workers.
