“We did a live cook-along with a MasterChef Professional, making a delicious Vegan Paella. We were sent the ingredients the day before, in environmentally friendly packaging, with guidance on what-to prep beforehand. Professional chef Claire Hutchings guided us through making the dish and we all chopped, drizzled, scattered, and fried to pull together some delicious food. Thank you to The Cookaway for organising it all so seamlessly and making it fun!”
Samantha Tarring, Project Manager, Torchbox

“We all enjoyed our Malaysian Cookaway dish the other night and it really helped with engagement across the business for Blue Monday. It was a welcome change from the normal quick fix dinner! The feedback from the business has been so positive on the experience as well as the taste of the dish so thank you to The Cookaway for arranging these boxes so quickly for us.”
Michael Judkins, Director, 3 Search
Diversity & Inclusion
Our experiences integrate perfectly into D&I initiatives. Improve inclusion and educate in a fun and engaging way.
“We want to say a massive thank you for a truly awesome Diwali event! I had so many comments afterwards ‘This is AMAZING’,‘Best virtual event we’ve had’, ‘Can we do this every week’. It was a great way to create belonging & inclusion for the members of the team from Indian Heritage but also to share their amazing culture with those of us who are not. I would definitely recommend The Cookaway again!”

“This element of the PositivityFest event went really well and was so well received by those taking part, they really seemed to enjoy the recipe too! Nidhi was a great host and the team made everything run so seamlessly! The service you provided with all the pre-planning and deliveries was outstanding and I would be so happy to work with you all again, should we ever need to plan for another cooking activity for this.”

“The whole team really loved it! Everyone enjoyed both the cooking aspects and the educational bits around health, it felt like all the questions re ingredient benefits and gut health were answered really well. The bespoke aprons were also a lovely touch, we loved that everyone was wearing theirs whilst cooking.”
Nadia Piracha, Employee Engagement and Internal Communications Coordinator, Improbable
Hold a cookalong to entertain your corporate clients of VIP members. We can pull out all the stops with the boxes and events.
“We approached The Cookaway to help us organise a virtual client event for some of our top clients based across the UK. I felt confident working with The Cookaway team throughout the event planning process and it was clear they understood what we were trying to achieve by hosting this client event, all communication and logistics ran smoothly. Ping did a great job at keeping the tempo and energy high during the event. Clients commented on how well presented the recipe boxes were, how easy Ping presented and how authentic and tasty the final dish turned out to be. A lot of fun was had by all, and I think I can safely say this has been our most successful virtual client event to date. We look forward to hosting another virtual cook-along with The Cookaway next year!”

Cookalong with colleagues & clients FAQs
Choose your virtual cookalong from the list above and order the menu using the Book Now button. It will be added to your shopping cart for delivery the day before the event. You will automatically be added to the guest list, and you will receive further information and a link to join the virtual cookalong a few days before the event.
Our virtual cookalong events are free to join, you only pay for the cost of the boxes you order.
You can order a box for either 2 or 4 people.
You will be cooking the same menu as the chef on the date of the cookalong. However, we can adapt the menu for vegetarians or other dietary requirements depending on the menu, please contact us before booking if you’d like to arrange this or leave a comment at checkout.
We host your virtual cookalong using the Zoom Webinar platform. We’ll send you a link to access the virtual cookalong a few days before the event. You’ll be able to view it on a laptop, tablet or phone using the Zoom app or your browser. You don’t need a Zoom account to join the virtual cookalong.
We love seeing everyone cooking along and welcome conversation and questions being asked directly however there is no obligation to turn your camera or microphone on during the cookalong if you wish to remain private. The Cookaway Chef will be pinned so that their screen is showing large, and the Host will be visible on the screen too. You can choose to sign in with your real name or anonymously. You will be able to ask questions by typing into the Zoom Q&A feature instead of needing to speak.
We aim to make our virtual cookalongs as inclusive as possible for all skill levels, so we manage the pace throughout by checking in regularly to see how people are doing. You will receive a prep sheet by email before the cookalong to help you get set up correctly and get ahead on preparing some ingredients. Recipe cards with all steps involved will also be included in the box if you need to check anything at any time. Your Chef will take you through everything step-by-step and answer any questions as they arise.
The duration of a cookalong will depend on the menu being cooked but most of our cookalongs last between 90-120 minutes inclusive of interaction and time spent on questions and stories being shared by the chef. If the menu requires a shorter cook time we can expect the cookalong to be between 60-90 minutes.
If you aren’t able to join the cookalong on the day and wish to cook the recipe the next day we will be able to share a recording of the cookalong with you so that you can cookalong still and hear of all tips and tricks. Please note that recordings are only available the day after, and it is only the chef that is recorded to ensure the privacy of attendees.
