In addition to PREP’s regular program of courses, our well-appointed kitchen is available for all types of private functions including corporate events, corporate team building activities, company parties and entertaining clients…

At PREP, we guarantee the experience will be a memorable one.  From small businesses to international conglomerates our clients choose PREP for a distinctive corporate experience.  See our  RATES, TERMS & MENUS for full details, menus and pricing.         

Regardless of the menu or the activities involved, we'll make your company event as simple to plan as
one, two, three.

1.  Pick a date and determine the number of participants, their tastes, and particular needs.

Are there vegetarians in the group? Meat lovers? Foodies? Ethnic cuisine aficionados? If so, we can plan a perfect menu for your group and accommodate any dietary preferences.

Our minimum class size is 16 and we can easily accommodate 24 people and even work with groups up to 50 in number.  Events usually last three hours and can be scheduled during the workday, at night, or on weekends.

2.  Create your perfect menu from our extensive LIST OF RECIPES, or choose your own.  Generally, clients have time to prepare five to seven dishes, depending on complexity. Participants enjoy full servings of all of the dishes created during the class. All of our recipes are made from scratch, using only the freshest, seasonal, locally procured ingredients.

Too many choices? Call us at 562.430.1217 and in a few minutes we can create a menu tailored just for your event.

3.   Add the finishing touches. We’re there for you with expert recommendations on any flourishes, special requests, or additional services you might want – from team building activities and competitions to wine pairings to corporate gifts to goodie bags.

At PREP, we approach corporate team building from the premise that good food inevitably brings out the best in people. After all, teamwork, coordination, and cooperation are key to success both at work and in the kitchen.

Our hands-on cooking classes foster cooperation among coworkers, highlight the skills of individual team members, and enhance their abilities to work together effectively. Our attention to participant involvement and interaction in a fun, casual yet competitive environment is what sets PREP's team building classes apart from all others.

Past corporate clients include Toyota, Boeing, Tangram, Hurley, Gallo, Blizzard Entertainment, Generations Healthcare,TD Waterhouse, Long Beach Visitors and Convention Bureau, Merrill Lynch, Pricewaterhouse, Wachovia Securities, Wells Fargo, Modern Spaces  and many more...

Culinary contests and competitions can be at the core of your team building class where awarded points for categories such as organization, working together, taste-offs, creative presentation plates, while hidden challenges within recipes up the ante. We can also plan a "Chopped" type of team building event for your group, where teams are provided with specific ingredients and recipe names and make a dish from them without the aid of written instructions.  

For a novel way to reward your employees, schedule a private cooking class that allows them to learn, share, and enjoy great food and good times far removed from the workplace. From Holiday celebrations to retirement parties, or to just get away for an afternoon, PREP provides the perfect venue and entertaining activities for company fun.

We all know that kitchens make great gathering places. What better venue to host a group of clients and enjoy a social or business lunch or dinner than a cooking school where the surroundings are warm and inviting, the food delicious and made by colleagues in a social and fun atmosphere? At PREP, our classes provide an informative, casual, and cost-effective environment for your company to build new business relationships and acknowledge established ones.
