Jodi was awesome!! This was a family outing for us and it was fantastic! Both of my boys enjoy good food and wine and this provided both. Jodi was awesome and made sure that we participated AND understood the method to her cooking. We all had take away's, mine was the parmesan cheese bowls. If you are going to southern CA and want a great cooking/eating experience...do not miss this one!

We had a great time with Chef Jodi and her assistant Leticia during our vacation in San Diego. Chef Jodi conducted an in-home cooking class for us and then we were served an excellent al fresco dinner, poolside, in our vacation rental in Ocean Beach. She sent us a list of ingredients in advance of our trip with tips on where to go and get the freshest sea food and the best produce. It was a lot of fun - even for the two young kids in our group.

Thank you Jack! It was my greatest pleasure and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to have worked with you and your lovely family for Sheryl's special birthday celebration. The kids were so adorable and the peach crisp could not have been fresher since the children picked the peaches right of the tree! I hope Sheryl enjoys my cookbook as well!
Warm Regards,
Chef Jodi

We had a marvelous time in a comfortable scenic setting in La Jolla overlooking the ocean, divided into teams, and cooking a terrific dinner meal together. All of the food was tasty and we have since either purchased Jody's cookbook or tried the recipes we learned to cook at home - with great results! Have received feedback from all who attended, and they commented that this was one of the best ideas of how to host a terrific birthday party.

We spent 6 hours with Chef Jodi during my birthday weekend - we began at La Jolla Farmer's market - selecting spices and fruits for our luncheon. Next we returned to Jodi's lovely villa and created our luncheon. We made Orzo with Lemon, Feta, and Grape Tomatoes, roasted cauliflower steaks with sunchokes, mushrooms, and cauliflower puree,Herb crusted Halibut with a caper vinaigrette, and Peach crisp with Vanilla-Goat cheese mousse. Then we sat down and ate this delicious luncheon. I recommend this experience for any special celebration!

My spouse and I were looking for an experience to be the centerpiece of a long weekend trip to San Diego, and Lajollacooks4u was perfect. Jodi is delightful, welcoming and knowledgeable. We started our day at a San Diego farmers' market. We sampled local delights, while Jodi shared her tips for cooking with produce and spices. We then went to her beautiful home and followed her recipes to prepare our three-course meal. When the work was nearly done, Jodi invited us to a beautiful outdoor tablescape where we took in the priceless view of La Jolla and enjoyed some wine. Jodi plated and served us our meal like a four-star restaurant. It was an ideal southern California day. Interactive. Delicious. Scenic. Memorable.
