    Jodi and her team are amazing! First, I showed up expecting to have to help and she insisted I enjoy myself and let her team handle all the details. They way they handled everything from determining teams to the activity itself, to the judging, this was beyond my expectations. I HIGHLY recommend LaJollaCooks4u to anyone looking for a unique and memorable team building cooking classes experience.

    I got to participate in the cooking class along with my coworkers and everyone had such a great time! from the beginning watching the sunset to the end of the night chatting around the table over some wine. Everyone gets involved and can get very competitive. The food we made was so delicious, Jodi and her team were such great hosts. I would do this again for sure!

    Our company treats our top agents (real estate) to a getaway each year. One of the activities during the retreat has been cooking classes. 10 of us had the pleasure of spending our time with Jodi. She hosted the cooking class at her beautiful home in La Jolly overlooking San Diego and the Pacific Ocean. The setting was world class. The ambiance, instruction, and food were the best we have had. This is the third year we have done a cooking class and Jodi out did them all.
