CHEEKY FOOD GROUP TEAM COOKING LAUNCHES IN MELBOURNE
Australia's leading interactive team-building company has taken Victoria by Storm.
After its resounding success in Sydney, Cheeky Food Group launched its official Melbourne platform at the RSVP08 conference and events trade show back in May.
Cheeky Food Group Director Leona Watson says, "We are really excited about taking our interactive team cooking concept to Melbourne. The corporate teambuilding market in Melbourne has grown to the point where the next logical step is to consolidate our operations down there. In the past we have run events for companies in Melbourne such as ANZ, Bunnings, Freehills and Dairy Farmers and the resulting word-of-mouth has driven some pretty phenomenal demand. This launch is just the beginning of what promises to be a huge year for Cheeky Food Group."
Cheeky Food Group cooking events provide a welcome alternative to 'high-five' bonding activities and dull, sit-down restaurant meals. Anyone appointed to the coordination of conferences and team-building activities will understand that sourcing an activity that is fresh, fun and innovative can be a real challenge, especially for larger-sized groups. Cheeky Food Group provides an interactive and lively option for event organisers, by enticing colleagues to cook, laugh, chat and create a magnificent feast together for 4 - 400 people.
Sue Dahn from Melbourne-based company Pitcher Partners says, "It was an extremely memorable event - surprise, delight, learning, great fun and a chaotic activity followed by a gourmet banquet in a superb setting - if we can do that we can do anything!"
The company, which runs over 200 events a year for clients such as Ernst & Young, Commonwealth Bank and Optus, has a documented 100 per cent satisfaction rate. Leona says, "In all of the customer feedback we have received, every single client contact has said that they would recommend us. We are really proud of this achievement as we have been in business for over five years and hosted Cheeky Cook-Ups for thousands of colleagues."
From mid-May, Cheeky Food Group have been running events at Melbourne-based venues such as the Carlton Brewhouse, where the group hosted its introductory Cook-Ups. In addition to city and suburban locations, Cheeky Food Group will continue to run offsite events everywhere from vineyards to mountain tops. Leona says, "We love the challenge of setting up in a new environment; whether it's a huge pavilion with barely a tap in it, a beach, the bush or under a marquee. We can come to you, or find the perfect venue."
Inspire your team, clients or entire company to create their own, unique restaurant. As the 'chefs', you'll cook the glamorous meal. Then as the 'customers', you'll eat and enjoy your feast together. Far more than your run-of-the-mill cooking class, Cheeky makes it fun and totally interactive, with music and vino... a true "event"!

If it's your turn to come up with a Team Building Event, Client Entertaining, Christmas Party or Conference idea, then Cheeky Food Group is an excellent choice. I give it 5 stars!
Professional, relaxed atmosphere that is suitable for everyone cause there is no skill required. Broken up into teams, where everyone gets a chance to try something new, learn a new skill, and sit down to taste the results.
Broken into 4 segments Cheeky Food Group start with a social glass of bubbly or beer and welcome with a short safety talk on carrying knives and kitchen safety, which the Cheeky girls & guys have down to a fine amusing art, setting the mood for a fun day or night. Guests and then broken up into tables, with each table assigned a cook to help you through the menu task and to show you some kitchen shortcuts. Each pair is responsible for one dish on the menu, and it all starts with a glass of wine.
After the dishes are prepared, so it's time to clean up and set up for lunch or dinner. A buffet is set up along the side showcase everyone's fantastic team work. Then it's time to sit down and enjoy this fun and tasty meal and compare notes on with your fellow team mates.
Hands down this is the best team building event I've experienced. Extremely entertaining, great Cheeky Food chefs to encourage fun and easy to prepare dishes that taste sensational. You can't go wrong.
The Cheeky Food Group is not a cooking school, although they now offer classes as well...
The Cheeky Food Group love a challenge. Events can be tailored to suit themes, branding or even opening nights. The Cheeky Food Group have done conferences on islands, hotels, small and large office locations and much more. They have over 30 chefs on hand to make your event a success.
They offer a
