Cook ATX Team Building Workshops

Build community, strengthen your team, and create healthy lives by cooking together!

Cooking and eating together – the ultimate team building experience!

Cooking is an amazing way to spend time together, be creative, and learn about organization and cooperation. Cook ATX offers fun, hands-on, and informative team building workshops that will leave your group feeling nourished, refreshed, and ready to tackle the next big project, all while you make a delicious meal together!

The camaraderie of cooking together and the heavenly aromas will transport you to far away places while you solidify  friendships and laugh and learn together. At the end of the class, everyone enjoys a delicious meal together and helps tidy up. Voilà! 

Cooking and eating are at the heart of every community.

Professional Healthy Chef & Culinary Instruction

Cook ATX workshops are led by Natural Foods Chef Rachel Zierzow who has been teaching healthy cooking and mindfulness since 2006. These hands-on team building workshops can be organized at your business or in the chef’s home in southwest Austin. Workshops involve some chef instruction to get started, lots of team work, and even a little bit of competition if your group is so inclined! Events held during the day are usually for members of a group or team, whereas evening or weekend events can include spouses and/or families depending on the purpose of the event.

Make your next team event the most memorable ever

(and the most delicious)

Your Location or Ours – Wide Choice of Menus

Chef Rachel can travel to your facility to conduct a workshop for a small set-up fee. Groups over 10-15 can be accommodated if you have a space that will work for a class. Feel free to give us a call to discuss your particular needs with Chef Rachel. Workshops are customized for each group, and if your time is limited, classes can be shorted to fit most any time frame (~2 hours and up). 

Choose from a wide variety of international-themed menus. Special diets can be accommodated with advance notice. Ingredients are natural, organic and local whenever possible!

COVID-19 Precautions:

All in-person classes, lessons, and workshops are postponed until further notice due to shelter-in-place and social distancing orders in effect in Travis County.

To help people adjust to this crisis I am creating a new, affordable subscription service for everyone who is now finding themselves cooking from home more than ever. I hope to offer it for free or pay-what-you-can to people who have lost their jobs in this crisis. We are still working on the details, but hope to have it live in early April.

If you’d like to get a notice when the new subscription service is ready, join my list and I will keep you updated!

I am also continuing to offer online culinary instruction with my online course: Cook Naturally Without A Recipe (see front page or top menu)

We can help each other through these trying times

I want to do something to help everyone who is finding themselves home and cooking more than ever. My husband, daughter and I have been doing regular free live events on Facebook, and I am creating a low-cost subscription to help people stay healthy while we all work to get through these challenging times. One of the most important things to me is community, so more than ever I want to focus on the community side of Cook Love Heal.

Join me in the Cook Love Heal Community

I am working on creating more ways to connect the community through healthy food. I’ll let you know when my Facebook Live events are happening,  and when I have new community events like Q&A’s and virtual dinners and happy hours. And just like before this started, when you join the Cook Love Heal Community I’ll send you my Natural Health Starter Kit for free, along with regular recipes & tips every week.

For those who have the time to delve deeper, you can enroll in my new online course, Cook Naturally Without A Recipe, deepen your kitchen skills and make your time cooking at home more delicious and healthy. 

We’re all in this together. Let’s help each other build a better future
