In a recent Corporate team building cooking class we made one of the quickest and easiest desserts. Fruit Crumble is a firm favourite, served hot or cold. Make it with whatever fruit is in season – apples, pears, rhubarb, apricots, peaches, nectarines and plums. Delicious served with hot custard in winter, or ice-cream and crème fraîche in summer.
400g plain flour
100g rolled oats
250g butter, cold and cubed
200g sugar
Pinch of salt

2kg fruit, washed and seeded
1/2 cup sugar
3T lemon juice

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and grease a large shallow ovenproof serving dish.
  2. Crumble
  3. Place the crumble ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  4. Fruit
  5. If using apples or pears, first peel. Cut the fruit into large segments, toss with the sugar and lemon juice, and place in the greased serving dish.
  6. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the top of the fruit, give the dish a gentle shake. Place it into the preheated oven for ±45 minutes, or until the top is nice and evenly browned.

Our cookery classes are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. They are also a lot of fun where you not only learn new skills, but get to meet people with similar interests. For corporate groups and teambuilding cooking classes these events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients. For team building ideas, look no further.
