The concept of engaging people in group activities in order to build teamwork is not new.

Executive retreats and off-site meetings that include outdoor adventures, golf tournaments, or role-playing exercises are relatively commonplace.

Similarly, the idea of people cooking a meal together is not an unusual notion. Cookouts, holiday get-togethers with family members or preparing dinner with a few friends are time-honoured methods for establishing or renewing relationships.
