Cooking Teambuilding Options

Cooking is the perfect activity for teambuilding. Cooking and eating as a team allows the team to share about their culture and heritage which in turn encourages communication and teamwork.

Proven by Professor Ayelet Fishbach in the Journal of Consumer Psychology, colleagues who eat similar foods together experience higher rates of trust and closeness than those who eat alone! (Psst...Looks like it’s time to grab a colleague with you during lunch break 😁)

But… what should your team cook? Here are 4 of our recommendations for you

1) Xiao Long Bao (XLB)

I’m sure most of us here know XLB. It is a steamed dumpling filled with pork and broth. This delicious goodness originated from Nanxiang, a town in the Jiading district of Shanghai. One of the best parts about eating XLB is slurping its broth… mmm yummy! Savour the heavenly broth in the XLB together with your team!

2) Wok dishes

Wok dishes play an important element in Chinese food culture and can be easily found anywhere in China. Wok dishes highlight the importance of balancing crucial ingredients - soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar and more! Here’s a plus point... wok dishes are doable for your team to recreate in the office kitchen and even back home!

4) Thai Dessert 

There is always space for dessert so we can’t miss that out! Thai desserts are exotic and tropical - mainly made using fresh fruits. Think mangos, coconuts and pineapples... there are many kinds of desserts that can be created from these tropical fruits! 

Can you guess what these desserts are made of?
