Team Building


At The Fig Cooking School, we know that nothing creates stronger ties among friends, family, or colleagues than time spent in the kitchen. That’s why we’ve pioneered a team-building program grounded in the family tradition of cooking and breaking bread together. With an exclusive range of menus specifically tailored to our corporate clients, we will work with you to create a bespoke event, customized to your team’s needs. Our teaching kitchen, conveniently located in Milford, CT, can accommodate up to 49 guests, and features space for corporate presentations as well. Every guest heads home with a detailed recipe pack, and you can even enhance the experience with gift packs, ensuring that your team will cherish memories of your event for years to come.

In addition to many local businesses and doctor's offices, our happy clients have included Wolfgang Puck Catering, 3M, FedEx, Schick-Wilkinson Sword, Thule and Alexion. To set up your event and inquire about pricing please call 203.288.4142 or email
