Summer has been off to a busy start at Lajollacooks4u, and we’ve had so much fun hosting guests from all over the country!
Our first guests were the Powell family, coming all the way from Dallas, Texas. Debbie, Mickey and their two kids, Collin and Brittany, were on a family vacation, and loved the quality time they had with each other at Lajollacooks4u. They especially loved the pizza rolls, and can’t wait to come back for seconds!
Lajollacooks4u then hosted a charitable auction evening with the Southwest division of Volunteers of America, a nonprofit organization that provides affordable housing and other assistance services primarily to low-income people throughout the U.S. Gary McCormick was the winner of the auction raffle and brought along a group of his family and friends.
Chef Chris Gardner served as the guest chef of the evening and designed a magnificent menu consisting of local spotted grouper and porcini-rubbed chicken breast with orzo, feta cheese and grilled asparagus. To top it all off, dessert was stone fruit crisp, vanilla bean ice cream and sautéed berries – absolutely scrumptious!
To make the evening extra special, Chef Chris rounded up two former San Diego Chargers players, Kassim Osgood and Jacques Cesaire, to join in on the fun! All in all, it was a fun and delicious summer evening eating great food and enjoying the great company. Come back again soon!
