It was a delightful blend of fun and teamwork, making it more than just an event; it was a shared culinary journey that united our diverse team in a unique, Luxembourgish experience.

Should you chose experience only, we just need you to provide the list of email addresses of the participants to invite. If your company has a stringent policy in terms of sharing employees information externally, we would require one point of contact only and this person will forward internally the communication we will be sending. In this case we will ask you as an event organizer to accept and sign a liability waver form, as well as accepting GDPR rules and overall terms and conditions of the service on behalf of the group.
We can accommodate Small, Medium and Large groups. From 10 to thousands of participants. We provide three different event formats based on the group size: – TeamCook – Up to 20 participant.

Ideal for broader company events or across organizations (e.g. Dinner at the end of a full day virtual offsite) – Cookcast – over 100 participants. deal for Lunches/After work-Networking Cocktails during Global Virtual Conferences
ChefPassport expects general common sense and attention from the participants while working in the kitchen, especially with other friends or family members around. However ChefPassport cannot be liable for any injury which could happen. We ask every participant to fill a 30 seconds registration form online to collect explicit aknowledgement from individuals of security policies. If you are the responsible of the group and you prefer participants to skip the registration, you can ask your Event Manager to send you a document to sign on behalf of the entire group.
We have two options. If you are comfortable in sharing the list of guests and their email addresses with us, we will own the guest list and send the invites. Alternatively we will be talking to the internal event manager only, who will be responsible to forward internally the event details.
