Amway, a multi-level marketing company selling health, beauty and home care products, recently joined us for a fun night of team building!
Thirty of its Research & Development scientists arrived by bus to Lajollacooks4u’s hilltop venue, ready to get down to business in the kitchen. The group first participated in our signature olive oil competition and then broke up into teams and assembled into their assigned cooking stations.
The Pink team was assigned an Appetizer and prepared two fabulous kinds of Puff Pastry Tarts – one with Pesto, Cheese and Tomatoes and the other with Caramelized Onions, Pears, Figs and Gorgonzola. The Lavender team prepared the main course, grilling Flank Steak with a Blackened Rub and Chimichurri Sauce, as well as a variety of vegetables. The Orange team was assigned dessert and made delicious Mudslide and Lemon Curd Shooters. Ultimately, the Pink team was crowned the winner of the cooking challenge – not only due to the preparation of their delicious menu items, but also because of their spirit and creative infomercial.
Everyone had a great time, filled with many laughs and unforgettable memories. Stephanie Pohl, manager of the Amway group, said, “What an amazing experience! Thank you for an amazing, fun team-building event. Great staff, atmosphere and experience!”
Thank you, Amway, for choosing to spend your evening with us! It was a lovely way to kick off the first day of Spring!
