How is CIBO Different?

Q: Who is teaching the course?

A: CIBO employs professional restaurant, pastry and pasta chefs.  Many of our staff have advanced culinary and educational degrees.  Stefano Corvucci, gave up his career in law to follow his passion for cooking and owns two restaurants in Bologna.  Unlike many “cooking schools” in Italy, CIBO is a licensed cooking school, visited by local health authorities and is NOT held in someone’s apartment, which is against Italy sanitary code.  CIBO’s “team building” classes are not passive cooking demonstrations with little group interaction but rather “hands-on” individual and group participation We have set classes but we are more than happy to design a custom course to fit your individual needs and/or requests

What are CIBO Culinary Team Building Goals?

A:  CIBO staff has lots of creative ideas to develop a culinary team building experience for you and your company when visiting Italy. We can customize your special event and create tailored seasonal menus, and intra-departmental cooking challenges. If team building in Italy is your objective, contact us and together we can make your event a huge success.

Working together we aim to:

  • Boost morale
  • Foster collaboration
  • Improve communication
  • Build new relationships with work colleagues / customers
  • Enhance problem solving skills
  • Stimulate creativity


Q:  What is your capacity and group size you can accommodate at CIBO?

A: We think a small group is the ideal size but we also accommodate large groups at our various locations in Bologna. So if you have a group from 10-35 we can work together and plan the perfect event to not only meet your needs, but we hope to exceed your expectations!  If you have a smaller group we can do more of a corporate event or wine and dinner activity. If you have more than 35 we can host your event at one of our off-site locations.

Q:  Why is CIBO’s Culinary Team Building Program more than just a cooking class?

A: Companies across the world are seeing the power of team building exercises in a non threatening, enjoyable atmosphere of cooking classes, donning aprons and having a  ” an “Italian Cooking Adventure”  and learn as much about group dynamics than managers who attend other traditional team-building programs.
