December 12, 2011 | Author: | Posted in Food & Drink

Team building activities don’t have to be boring or cringe worthy! There are tonnes of fun creative activities to choose from, and a lot of the indoor activities revolve around food and drink. Here are some of the best.

Take a wine tour. Taking a tour of a vineyard near to Barcelona can be a great way to spend a day. You can see how the famous Cava is made for example, whilst enjoying the stunning countryside and also benefiting from some sample wine tasting.

There are some excellent award winning white English wines such as those produced by Three Choirs in Gloucestershire and Wickham in Hampshire.While enjoying your British Self Catering holiday you’ll find a good selection of real ales is served in many pubs; look out for local micro-breweries. Mild such as Banks’, Holdens and Highgate is most often found in the Midlands. Pale ales are more popular and Timothy Taylor, Adnams, Shepherd Neame and Marston’s have good examples. Cider is still a favourite particularly in the southwest of England like Thatcher’s in Somerset.

Go on a wine or food cruise. There are a number of opportunities to go out on a cruise boat in the day or evening time and this is a great way to sample some local tapas and wine whilst quite possibly also meeting others. On a summers day this can really be a wonderful way to enjoy an evening in Barcelona.

Paella Challenge. A lot of groups who go to Barcelona go there for either corporate team building events or for stag and hen parties. Events which combine food and team building tend to be very popular and one example is what is very popularly known as the Paella Challenge. Team members have to make a huge paella under certain conditions and this can be a real fun way to enjoy food and Barcelona.

In Northern Ireland try local cheeses, oysters and Guinness, Irish stew and drisheen (Black pudding). Look out for soda bread, Barm brak (tea loaf) and potato bread and finish the evening with an Old Bushmills whiskey.

Cooking lessons. It is possible to take cooking lessons in Barcelona with a cookery school and to learn from a local expert on how to cook tapas and local produce. You can also take advantage of the world famous and delightful Boqueria market in the centre of La Ramblas in Barcelona. Local recipes include the tasty Spanish omelette, the delicious desert crema catalana and the freshly caught fish.
