Team building

Companies are constantly looking for activities that instill a sense of belonging in their employees and strengthen their relationships. Developing each individual’s ability to work as a group is paramount for the success of any business, and living new experiences outside the usual workplace is a perfect way to foster it.


The Lorenzo de’ Medici Cooking School, the first cooking school within the Mercato Centrale of Florence, gives you the chance to organize a custom team building for your company. 


Team buildings held at Lorenzo de’ Medici Cooking School enable companies to live an unprecedented group experience, in a context where the haute cuisine becomes easily accessible to everyone and in which attention to quality (both of raw materials and human relationships) is the founding principle. Participants will be able to prove themselves in a different environment, honing their skills and interacting with their colleagues from a new angle.


The proposed team building activity is a cooking contest: the teams will receive recipes and they will compete for the best menu preparation by following the chefs’ instructions. The winning team will be declared by the chefs after tasting the dishes prepared by each group. Plating and team spirit will also be assessed to award the victory, which could be celebrated with a prize offered by the employer.

Cooking show

Do you want to try a different experience learning the secrets and techniques of cooking? We offer a cooking demonstration at lunch and dinner with a duration of one hour and a half. One of our chef will prepare a dish plus a dessert that you will taste all together combined with a glass of wine. During the demonstration we offer to you a fettunta, the typical bruschetta with olive oil.

The cooking demonstration is based on a minimum of 6 people and includes: a dish plus dessert, wine and recipes.


In the event that the cooking class does not have the minimum number of 6 participants, the course will be cancelled and the participants will be offered a full refund of the cost of the course, less any bank charges. As an alternative, we can organize private lunches and dinners for smaller groups by 2, 3, 4 or 5 people with a price calculated based on the number of participants. You can also compose menus for those who want to organize lunches and dinners with culinary demonstrations to share with friends or family for about 2 hours with the special prices which may vary according to your requests.


Participants must be aged 14 years or above. For participants under the age of 14 years, please contact directly
