Near Duivendrecht in Amsterdam Very nice setting to cook your own dinner with friends but it is especially suitable to cook with collegues. You prepare a course and can chat with someone you may not necessarily know very well (yet). They can handle large groups, but with smaller ones it is nice too.

we went with business colleagues. Group of approx 40 people split into 4 teams. Although majority claim they had no previous experience in cooking, the outcome was fantastic - perfect 3 course meal. Great fun, real team building. One of the most enjoyable experience

I've been at Kookfabriek with colleagues for a team building exercise. The experience itself has been great, but it does not get 5 stars as chefs appeared not that knowledgeable while being a bit pretentious. In other words, if you know less than the people you need to teach (in particular on Italian cuisine), don't pretend you do... Overall tho... More

150 of us split into teams and worked to produce high quality 4 course meals. It was a great fun experience which was greatly enjoyed by all. Each team was mentored by a resident chef who contributed as required rather than directed. It was a great night.

This is a place to learn how to handle food to get the best out of it in a nice and friendly atmosphere! You cook together with your group under leading of a chef. You eat what you cook and get surprised how easy it actually is to cook delicious meals!

I visited Kookfabriek with a group of business colleagues from around the globe. They offer a "do it yourself" dinner experience where all people are given tasks for preparing a 5-star meal. The menu is created by a Dutch master chef and you are assisted by a local chef. The team had a great time working together to build the... More
