A NEW partnership between the Cheeky Food Group and the 271-room Rydges Sydney Central saw a group of forty conference organisers on Tuesday evening gather in the hotel’s Surry Room for a fun team cooking adventure.
Prior to the event a site inspection was held of the hotel’s eight meeting rooms with capacities from 6-220 and of the stylish bedrooms. Mutterings of – “I can’t cook” and “I don’t know one end of the knife from the other,” were soon put to bed as guests were broken up into teams of three, the music cranked up and aprons tied to create what turned out to be an banquet worthy of the finest restaurant kitchen – all under the expert tutelage of the Cheeky Team.
Leona Watkins who started the business 13 years ago and has since held events with some 3000 teams and 70,000 colleagues said, “We are all about creating business events, we don’t do cooking classes. “Whether it’s for the ceo and their executive team, a group of 500 delegates on conference, an IT team or your clients – we’ll create a corporate event to bring real business benefits,” she enthused.
