A Cheeky Christmas Cook-Up

Media release
A Cheeky Christmas Cook-Up
A Fun Alternative for Your Work Christmas Party

September 2008: It’s that time of year again to dream up new ideas for the Christmas work function. Another boat cruise? Another restaurant? Not this year! Cheeky Food Group offers a fun alternative to the usual Christmas antics with a Cheeky Cooking Party.

Cheeky Cook-Ups are a cost-effective way to provide the staff Christmas Party that doubles as a well-disguised team building activity. Everyone gets to learn some tips and tricks in the kitchen then sit down to a delicious meal plus the group becomes their own entertainment! Christmas parties no longer need to be a nightmare logistically - organising venue hire, catering, room decorations and booking entertainment is all done for you.

The interactive nature of the fun, yet professional, Cheeky Cooking Event gives the quieter or newer staff a chance to bond with the team over plenty of music and vino. Cooking together is a great leveler as you don’t need to be an athlete or have nerves of steel – or even know how to boil an egg - to contribute to the success of the meal. Leona Watson, Director of Cheeky Food Group says, “Whether you’re a CEO or fresh out of university, you all chop, cook and chat together. We‘ve noticed people tend to let their defenses down, relax, bond and enjoy a glass of wine with their colleagues or clients. Perfect for amping up positive energy, rewarding staff for their efforts and finishing off the year with a sensational party.”

Mandy Geddes, Institute of Executive Coaching says “It was a great night – lots of fun, different and fabulous for integrating everyone. People really got into it and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was definitely a Christmas party with a difference! A fantastic night out for our company”.

The Cheeky Christmas Party can be held at their HQ in Surry Hills Sydney or anywhere across Australia and New Zealand. Cheeky Food Group are fully portable and can organise a Cook Up from beachside to mountaintop for groups of 4 to 400 people.
