We kicked off our 10-year anniversary this month by welcoming a local, for-profit organization into our kitchen!
Apex Fun Run, an organization that partners with schools to raise funds for equipment and other campus needs, brought sixteen of its team members to partake in one of our critically acclaimed corporate cooking challenges.
The evening began with our signature olive oil competition and was then followed by team members splitting into groups and selecting a dish to prepare. A head chef was appointed to manage each team, and team members chose to either help prepare the recipe or to help produce a 90-second infomercial showcasing their assigned dish. Many laughs were had in the process, and all of Apex’s team members enjoyed the delicious food and great company – all while taking in the view overlooking Mt. Soledad in La Jolla.
Later that week, we hosted ID Analytics, a leading software company in credit and fraud risk solutions. The company brought in 16 of its team members as a way to thank them for their hard work over 2017.
Just like those at Apex Fun Run, the ID Analytics team split up into groups and prepared their assigned dish. Everyone had a great time cooking and collaborating, and the Chocolate Melting Cakes were a huge hit!
Said team member Anna Fisher, "We had a wonderful team building event! A great way to mix up day-to-day interactions and learn some new skills! A really wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Thank you for your hospitality!"
Thanks to both Apex Fun Run and ID Analytics for visiting our kitchen! Hope to see you again soon!
