New cooking studio to offer corporate teambuilding opportunities

FOOD PLAYGROUND, a cooking studio launched recently in Singapore, is looking to serve up cultural- and culinary-themed teambuilding programmes to corporate clients.

Founded by Daniel Tan, who was with The Ascott Group and Pan Pacific Hotels Group, and another business partner, Food Playground had its first corporate group earlier this week. The event was a product launch and cook-out for some 20 international media representatives, hosted by a multinational home appliance manufacturer.

Speaking to TTGmice e-Weekly at his cooking studio in Tanjong Pagar, within the central business district, Tan said: “I’ve had several enquiries from companies wanting to do teambuilding at Food Playground. We can tailor the programme for private groups, such as by featuring specific dishes or creating a cooking competition for teams.”

Food Playground’s cooking studio has a well-equipped kitchen with large workstations for 16 people and an instructor, as well as a spacious dining area where participants can dig into their own creations after classes.

Corporate event planners can also opt for Food Playground’s three-hour Cultural Cooking Class as a pre- or post-show tour option. The programme will begin with a half-hour visit to a local wet market, where participants will be introduced to local spices, tropical fruits and the locals’ way of life, and followed by 90 minutes of cooking instructions on two popular local dishes and an hour of dining and interaction. It is priced at S$99 (US$80.50) per person.

Programmes offered are commissionable, but the commission rate has yet to be firmed up.
