Keeping connected while working remote has been quite challenging. I recently met an employer of a large health tech company on my plane from Boston to NYC and we spent an entire hour talking about how he's been trying to keep his employees motivated during the pandemic and post-pandemic. When I explained to him that I founded IMPASTIAMO, he was thrilled. We discussed online vs in person and so on.
With IMPASTIAMO, we've hosted over 50 team building classes by now, with chefs from New Delhi, Mexico City, Lima, Rome, Sicily, Buenos Aires, Japan, to name a few. Here are the reasons we think hosting a virtual cooking class for team building is a great idea.
1. Celebrate cultural diversity through authentic food experiences
No better way to celebrate diversity months with chefs live from their own countries.

2. Learn how to use your own kitchen tools, in your own kitchen
It's often hard to learn how to make a dish with someone else's tools and kitchen. Virtual experiences allow you to learn how to make a dish with your own tools and find creative solutions when you don't have the proper tools.
3. Ingredients delivered to attendees homes
You can have ingredients delivered to your guests as an additional perk and they won't have to worry about shopping! We offer ingredients kits all over the US and in Europe.
4. It's extremely interactive and for everyone!
Cooking together online is super interactive as the focus is in the kitchen, rather than the computer!
5. Dietary restrictions welcome
Hosting online cooking classes will allow you to be able to include people with dietary restrictions and allergies.
