The Fearless Kitchen: FAQ’s
DO WE REALLY HAVE TO COOK?
We take enormous pride in bringing you an event that will be memorable that your participants will still be discussing it years later. Event the most negative or skeptical will thoroughly love this experience. We host these events with the primary mission to ensure that grumpy faces are transformed to smiles; that private introverts feel honoured and that extroverts are – well sometimes joked with!
Seriously though, men will say – ‘we don’t want to cook our own food’ yet when they do they are blown away with their success and will be the first to admit it was fun. Women may feel this is just what happens at home and they would prefer to relax than take part. Yet, again, this is engaging in a unique way and hey, the washing and cleaning gets taken care of, and the spirit of the occasion lifts even those who need the extra boost along the way!
WHO IS OUR HOST?
Vanessa has a psychology degree and has worked in the Corporate field in Human Resources. She is a gem at understanding the need for a true Team Build experience, for adults, that is about connection and communication, the building of trust and a change to the perception of collaboration. Her events are intelligently created and hosted and aim to engage every single team member.
HOW IS THIS A TEAM BUILD ?
This is a result driven Team Build opportunity for your business.
Vanessa also knows that there is no greater way to bring people together than through food!
In hosting a corporate event, it is essential that we meet with the client to understand their requirement. Every organisation is different and complex, and even within a single company, the needs of a team can vary enormously.
There is no single ‘one size fits all’ solution when it comes to an event and we understand that.
Coming up with a unique idea for your company is a challenge and exciting and we are proud to have worked with companies repeatedly and to have the feedback that we keep excelling with our new and innovative ideas.
SO, now it is time for you to take action
DO WE ENGAGE OUR EMPLOYEES – OR ENTERTAIN OUR CLIENTS……
The Fearless Kitchen Team Build events provide the clients with a perfectly tailored high end Cooking Team Build event.
Your team will be kept engaged and active whilst being inspired and energised by our Host to cook, connect and communicate around the preparation of some inspiring dishes.
This is not a gimmick and it’s not going to cause anyone to moan with embarrassment. The food choices are matched to the dietary requirements of the team, and can be themed to match your company; your own conference theme; or specialised by country, culture or season.
We have over 5 years of experience bringing these bespoke events to top Managers at key global companies here in NZ.
Now we are combining with our company’s mission and taking you along our socially inspired journey too.
WHAT DOES “INVEST IN AN EVENT AND YOU WILL GIVE “ONE” BACK” MEAN?
With every event you book with us, we will provide an event for kids/youth ‘in need’ to have a chance to cook together, connect with others, communicate with those around them and learn about some healthy food choices along the journey.
HOW WILL WE UNDERSTAND THE GIVE BACK HAS TAKEN PLACE?
This is the easy part! We work with you to ensure you are comfortable with the give-back event and who will be the recipients.
You will be blown away with feedback from School Principals, teachers and kids themselves. We will always forward this to you.
We can provide photos and video footage of what you have been able to support.
You can share this with your clients and your staff who will be thrilled to see the impact you are having in the wider community. Alternatively, engage the staff all over again and send them to the ‘give-back’ event as volunteers. This is a reinforcement of the collaboration and connection we can build within and outside our community and culture.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE ‘EXTRA’ TEAM RESULTS WE MAY SEE IN THE CORPORATE TEAM BUILD EVENT?
Whilst you will be initially thrilled by the instant connection your team makes with their peers, this will last way beyond the kitchen and this experience. You will also notice that communication and team dynamics shift quickly as team members find new and surprising strengths and feel a sense of group accomplishment.
Our extra demands on the team with break away challenges and PR pitches will create enough tension to bring leaders to the fore, and ensure that teams foster a sense of group purpose.

Thank you to all those Corporates who have already invested in their staff and customers and helped me to give back to those in need.
