Teaming Up this Christmas – at Home and at the Office

If you conjure up images of Christmas’ past, it may involve a few friends or relatives in the kitchen cooking while the rest of the party drinks and waits for their Christmas feast. If you then think about the traditional Office Christmas Party, this generally involves eating and drinking but again no real connection or involvement.

Cheeky Food Group Managing Director, Leona Watson, explains the trends she has seen over the years, "The focus has gone from one person doing all the cooking to a combined effort. It’s also more fun to cook together and the days of the old style of never seeing the host are gone" Watson says. "Families now share the cooking, they ask people to bring dishes and also opt for less traditional dishes on Christmas Day."

This shift in cooking and entertaining has also been popular in the corporate market. "Christmas is our busiest time of year" tells Watson. "The corporate world has increased pressure to shun lavish end of year parties with a focus on drinking. They’re looking to also include some interaction. Our team cooking events create just that – a fun activity (which also provides the entertainment!) but you still get delicious food, wine, music and smiles all round. Cooking really brings people together without feeling ‘forced’ and after a tough year at work, that is just what most companies need. "
