This was a heated summer for Lajollacooks4u. Not only did we welcome new and wonderful faces, but we worked day-in and day-out to compile a cookbook worthy of our fans. And now as summer comes to a close and autumn begins to greet us, we can't wait to announce that our cookbook is making its way to the printer this month! The fabulous Lajollacooks4u cookbook will be published and available to everyone just in time for the holidays! A delicious treat for every foodie...
In-Home Cooking Class with The Zalkin Family
The month of August began with a wonderful in-home cooking class with the Zalkin family. Gloria Zalkin and her husband, Irwin, invited Chef Jodi into their home for an evening of food and familial bonding. Eight of Gloria and Irwin's family members joined in on the educational fun. Their daughter, Alisha, even came down from Los Angeles with her boyfriend, Dan, so they wouldn't miss out!
Everyone worked together to create a scrumptious 4-course meal, before sitting down to enjoy their creations in their lovely Del Mar dining room. Everyone had a blast, especially Chef Jodi!
Meet Super Foodie Couple, Veronica and Dave Medina
A lovely couple from Temecula joined Chef Jodi for a delicious birthday celebration in mid-August. Dave purchased a Lajollacooks4u gift certificate a little while back as a fabulous birthday present for his wife, Veronica. The couple, two self-proclaimed super foodies, said that their Lajollacooks4u dinner was "hands-down one of the best meals [they] ever ate".
Dave and Veronica were so tremendously pleased with the experience that they immediately gave Chef Jodi and Lajollacooks4u a 5-Star review on TripAdvisor. Their awesome review rounded Lajollacooks4u at 200 amazing reviews on the TripAdvisor website!
"What an amazing culinary experience! Thank you for being so wonderfully prepared to give us such a memorable experience. I cannot believe we were part of making such a delicious meal," said Dave. Thanks so much Dave, we hope to have you and Veronica back in our kitchen very soon!
Searching for a new and unique way to celebrate, the girls opted for a lovely lunch-in at Lajollacooks4u. Since all of the girls are avid home-cooks and entertainers, they agreed that Lajollacooks4u was just the place to expand their knowledge and monument Margie's birthday. We couldn't agree more!
The birthday girl was extremely pleased with her birthday celebration: "What an amazing afternoon. Such a memorable way to celebrate my 75th birthday!"
One of the ladies, Jeanne, was very quick to praise Jodi and her excellence in providing them with a memorable day of friendship and food. "I can't imagine a better way to spend an afternoon. I was too embarrassed to ask for seconds on dessert - but BEST plum crumble ever!" said Jeanne.
Another Amazing Birthday at Lajollacooks4u
A delightful couple, Mike and Nancy Pfieffer, were also celebrating a birthday! The couple invited four of the couple friends to join in on the evening celebration in Chef Jodi's gorgeous Tuscan-inspired villa.
Mike and Nancy are world travelers who have participated in amazing cooking classes all over the planet. Fortunately, they didn't have to venture very far for this one-of-a-kind cooking class and we were so glad they chose to celebrate with us!
"Thank you for a delicious evening," said Nancy. "What a wonderful birthday treat!"
The Cookbook is Almost Here!
We can't believe it, but time has gone by so fast and the Lajollacooks4u cookbook is right around the corner! After months of planning and producing, we are finally ready to send our product on its merry way.
