December has been a busy month over here at Lajollacooks4u! Our most recent guests to join us for the holiday festivities was MRI, a real estate software company based out of Cleveland, Ohio.
They brought in their team of 16 for a little team-building and together they engaged in some friendly competition, shared some laughs – and most importantly, had a ton of fun!
After our signature olive oil competition, the group split into three teams and got started in preparing their three-course menu, which consisted of Manchego and Mango Quesadillas with an Avocado Sauce, Grilled Flank Steak and Blackened Salmon with a Chimichurri Sauce, Quinoa with Black Beans and Corn and our decadent Mudslide and Lemon Curd Shooters for dessert!
Each group also came up with their own infomercial to showcase their creations. One team, in particular, really got into it, creating paper mustaches to correspond with their team slogan, “Mustached Manly Men Making Mariela’s Manchego Mango Mexican.”
Everyone had a great time and really got into the holiday spirit, leading sales director, Andrea Matheny, to write: “Loved it! Food was amazing, team was amazing! Thank you for hosting a great team-building evening and a great San Diego experience!”
Thank you, MRI, for joining us this holiday season! Hope to see you in our kitchen again soon.
