Why You Should Make the Kitchen the Heart of Your Next Event

Everyone loves to gather around a freshly prepared meal, and with so many different cuisines to try, it’s no wonder that eating out is as popular as ever. If you are looking for somewhere new to go, or are organising an event, then perhaps having it based in a kitchen is the right choice for you? Whether it’s tasting menus or cocktail making, there’s a kitchen experience out there for everyone. You might even want to don a chef’s hat yourself.


It’s a Great Way For People to Meet


There’s a reason why we love to go out for dinner or drinks with friends, or head to a restaurant on a first date. Eating and drinking helps to break the ice and get everyone chatting in a way that no other event can. This makes cooking classes and drinks tasting the perfect way to meet other people. Attendees won’t be as shy about turning up on their own, and if they enjoy it, they’ll recommend it to other people. It’s a great way to get the party started and get everyone chatting.


Learning a New Skill


One of the biggest draws for cookery or baking classes is that you can learn a new skill. Hosting an event that allows people to do this in a relaxed atmosphere will always be popular. So long as no one takes themselves too seriously, you’ll be drawing the crowds in no time. Many people don’t know where to begin when it comes to cooking, so if you can give them the opportunity to make something that they can be proud of, then they’re sure to thank you for it.


Corporate Events


Classes centred around the kitchen have become more and more popular for corporate events. There are a number of reasons for this, but it’s easy to see why when you think about it. Cooking together helps build trust and teamwork in a venue that is totally separated from the daily grind of the office. They can learn something new, have fun, all while strengthening the bonds that are so needed between team members. It’s a fun, indoor activity that is suitable for everyone, so no one will be left out. It doesn’t matter what skill level you start from, a kitchen-based class can be designed for anyone.


Hen Dos


What’s a hen do without a few drinks? If you need an idea for an activity, then cocktail making is always a firm favourite. Once you find the right mixologist, you’ll be able to customise your night in whatever way suits your group best. From signature cocktails, to different themes, there’s something out there for every bride-to-be. If you’re looking to add a sophisticated touch but stay in a kitchen venue, why not consider wine-tasting as an alternative? Not only will you get lots of samples, you’ll learn about the best way to taste, where the different wine comes from, and the secrets to how it is made. All this makes it a hen do activity that everyone gets excited about.


Kitchen Venues


There are lots of kitchen venues for hire in London and as an event space, they can be hard to beat. There are so many different styles out there, that you’ll be able to find something to suit any style of event. From a birthday party to a corporate conference, bringing people into a kitchen setting always helps them to relax and unwind. Whether it’s a soothing country style, or something fit for the Michelin guidebook, everyone’s tastes can be catered for. If you want to see how the best food in the world is made, or have a go at some recipes for yourself, then a kitchen is the only place to do it.


Make it Themed


One thing about having a kitchen event is that it is easy to make the food and drink fit into a particular theme. This is one reason why cooking classes are so good for any type of event or party. Food is a major part of any organised event, so if you have the group making it themselves, you don’t need to worry about hiring caterers. It’s a brilliant activity to put emphasis on whatever theme you’ve gone for and there’s no reason why dressing up won’t be allowed either!


A Talk With the Experts


If you are organising an event and want to add a class to it, then it’s a great chance for everyone involved to learn more off of the experts teaching them. Make sure that you save time for the chef or sommelier to sit down and answer any questions that people might have. It’s also interesting if they talk through their story – what brought them into this career and what they love about it. Time like this is really important at these types of events. You can spend so long cooking and tasting, that you can miss out on the valuable experience that the experts have to share.


Pair Up Food and Drink


Remember that if you are organising a cooking class, that there’s something for everyone to drink when they are eating their meals. Similarly, if it is a cocktail masterclass or a wine tasting event, there needs to be plenty of nibbles going around for everyone to snack on. Forgetting about something like this can mean that there is something vital missing from what is otherwise a perfect kitchen event.


Good food is what makes a good event great, so by basing your next one in the kitchen, you are putting it at the very heart of the night. Not only will guests love the chance to get hands-on, they’ll also learn something new, all in an easy-going atmosphere surrounded by like-minded people. So, if you’re stuck for ideas, why not host your next event in a kitchen?
