Is your team craving a deeper connection?

Cooking classes at East Austin Culinary Studio aren't just about learning to cook. They are about creating the perfect environment to spark conversation, laughter, and joy with your team.

This is not your average team build. This is the team build your team will be talking about all. year. long.

Traditionally, these classes are in-person but due to COVID-19 we are offering virtual team building sessions.

Meet Your


I'm Chef Amanda and I love teaching people how to cook. Cooperate team builds are best because each team member brings a different skillset into the kitchen and I get to unlock each teammate's culinary confidence so they can share it with their team. You never know who will be the most skilled in cooking each dish. It usually surprises the team -- I love that!

Is your team a good fit?

 You team is the right fit if:

  • your team LOVES to eat

  • your team wants to do something other than sports

  • your team is tired of sitting at a desk

  • your team needs an indoor team building activity in Austin (so hot outside!)

  • your team is ready to sink your teeth into something new

 You team is NOT the right fit if:

  • y'all hate to eat or you think food is boring

  • y'all are grumpy 

  • y'all just want to sit down and be served food (I mean I wouldn't mind this sometimes)

Teams that aren't a good fit

Organic Groceries

How it works

For in-person classes, just show up at the start time ready to cook!

For virtual classes, Chef Amanda will send you a grocery list along with the set of recipes for the class. If you're in Austin, for an additional fee you can pick up all the groceries you'll need on the day of the class. Have all your groceries ready and recipes printed (if you prefer paper), then join the Zoom call from your home kitchen at the start time.
