Recent Client Testimonials.
“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.“
Joe, Sr 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 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.”
Doris, 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!"
Bennord, Process Development Director, Burt's Bee's.

Our Team is proud to offer five different programs to consider for your Team Building Adventure:
- Iron Chef Competition - competitive event, team against team
- The Gourmet Basket - similar to "Chopped" but with a goal to unify the whole team
- Culinary Collaboration - straight forward challenge of preparing a culinary delight
- Pasta Aficionado - old world Italian menu with hand-crafted pasta, focaccia, salad and dessert
- Tapas and Taste - a small plate experience paired with a wine from our wine cellar.
Fees begin at $75/person for the above programs. For each event please allow three hours. Let’s talk about your goals. Select day or evening times are available.
All events are customized and perfect for teams of non-cooks as well as those with some culinary expertise. The goal is to help facilitate creativity, communication, taste, and teamwork.
Please inquire about parking and transportation arrangements for large groups.
General Event Overview:
Our Team guides yours with creativity and fun challenges as they move towards incredible results. Each event allows for 20 minutes of socializing with the chefs over some team culinary icebreakers. Following this, we orient to the kitchen, include safety tips and outline challenges of the event. Next the group as a whole is divided into teams responsible for a particular course of the meal. The teams then work with customized ingredients to create a spectacular and deliciously creative five star meal. Each individual team makes a creative presentation to the whole team.
And then comes the reward for your efforts; sitting at the table in our glass enclosed French style dining room to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
C'est si Bon! Team Building fits into any busy conference schedule—day or evening.
A Team Event is a perfect energizing alternate to:
a restaurant dinner
a standard new team orientation
a reward for a completed project.
