Cooking together is a creative activity that promotes problem-solving, dexterity, and intuition.
TEAM BUILDING IN THE KITCHEN… WITH A VIEW!
Team cooking is an experiential model that focuses on the power of food of getting everyone involved. Our team building courses combine the Italian culture of fresh pasta with the goals of teamwork, offering a fun activity in the centre of Bologna with a breath-taking view of the Two Towers. Team members will be involved in a workshop that will see them making their own pasta in equipped stations, starting from the dough, through to rolling it out and creating the most traditional Bolognese pasta shapes, including tortellini and tortelloni. During the different stages of the course, teamworking and competitive activities alternate to create a close-knit and efficient team – an experience they will take back to the workplace!
PASTA-MAKING AS TEAM BUILDING
Minimum 1.5 Hours – up to 4 hours
Team building is an activity aimed at companies, groups and work teams with the purpose of improving their ability to work together, boosting team performance and results. This is why, at Portici Academy, we offer Team Building and Show Cooking activities designed around our clients’ needs. We rely on expert teachers and professionals in the world of hospitality and haute cuisine to combine Cooking Team Building with other experiential activities. We are able to manage small groups for small activities, as well as large groups of up to 70+ people, and also offer the option to have private, casual-style catering in a glass room with a view of the Two Towers.
GET THE PORTICI EXPERIENCE: WE’LL TAKE CARE OF THE REST
Completing the offer is the possibility of creating the ‘Portici Experience‘, with a stay at the 4*S I Portici Hotel, with its 100 rooms (Liberty-style or Modern) and a Business System of 8 Meeting Rooms. Here, you can experience haute cuisine at the I Portici Restaurant, Michelin Star holder since 2013, as well as strikingly beautiful spaces, such as the ancient 14th-century icehouse and the Pincio terraces.
SELF BUILDING: THE NEW RECIPE
Minimum 4 hours – up to 8 hours, as well as the tasting activities in the days preceding the activity and reporting activities in the days that follow.
Our new proposal is “Self Building” courses, which offer companies an innovative approach to training, combining the figure of the psychologist with the cooking experience, focusing on individuals to overcome individualism within teams.
The Portici Academy’s Self Building proposal stems from the close collaboration with ViVara and the psychologists of the Meráki Psiké group.
It is an innovative training procedure that makes use of a team of psychologists and alternates theoretical moments, to investigate self-knowledge in relation to the dynamics of narcissism, with experiential moments in the kitchen. It is based on the psychology of work and personality and is proposed to companies to promote individual self-awareness within a work group, with a focus on the personality of each individual instead of the generic personality of the work group.
Each team member will privately receive a personality test, a valuable snapshot of themselves from a different perspective, while the Company will receive a global picture of the company’s personalities, identifying the personality groups that make up its team.
