Customised group workshop

Taste of Okura offers the perfect opportunity for tailor-made workshops. Our team of professional event planners will think along with you about the options. We are happy to set up the cooking studio according to your wishes. A walking dinner, cooking demonstrations and live cooking are all among the possibilities. For the workshops you can choose a theme, for example lobster, game or asparagus masterclasses. If desired, we can arrange a sound system, television screen and other amenities. The table setting can also be fully adapted to your needs from seated dinner to walking dinner. This makes Taste of Okura convenient for team building activities, outings with clients and special occasions.

Allergies and medical dietary requirements

It is important to us that our guests with allergies or medical dietary requirements receive our utmost care in preparing their meals. Since the guests prepare the dishes themselves during the cooking workshops, it is not possible to guarantee that the food served will be free of allergens. Therefore, for guests with an allergy or medical dietary requirement, our chefs will prepare their meal separately and serve this during the workshop. The guest is welcome to participate in cooking the group menu with his or her fellow guests if this does not risk an allergic or medical reaction. Please inform us of any allergy or medical dietary requirement when reserving the workshop so that we can make the necessary arrangements.

  • A sparkling aperitif at the start of the cooking workshops in the evening.
  • Water and non-alcoholic cocktails during the workshop.
  • A glass of wine with every course.
