A beautiful setting with views of the Pacific Ocean for this fun team event. Jodi greeted us with a refreshing "mocktail" and proceeded to host a super fun event for our work group. The recipes were delicious; all the ingredients were prepped with well-organized instructions making it easy for us to follow along. Jodi accommodated all of our quirky dietary needs and she gave us lots of tips as we prepared the food under her guidance. Would definitely do an event like this again!

We held a work-related team building event at Jodi's house with Lajollacooks4u. The event was well-planned and we loved the contests between the teams. They were in good fun and produced a lot of laughter! The recipes were easy to follow and the food was delicious. It would be a small, but nice, improvement to provide each person with a card with their role laid out clearly It can get pretty chaotic and people lost track of what they were supposed to do. A minor complaint in the scheme of the whole event. Overall it was great!

Thank you so much for the very valuable feedback. When the teams are cooking there is a great deal of excitement and good ole competition so yes it can get a bit hectic! There were instructions on the table but in the excitement they may have gotten overlooked and of course we also have our staff facilitator at each station that are there for the sole purpose of assistanting their team. At the end of the day we want the teams to have great fun and delicious food. I am so glad you choose Lajollacooks4u for your team building event and hope to welcome you back into,our kitchen soon!

We had our end-of-year/new-year team event with Jodi and Lajollacooks4u and could not be happier. A beautiful venue with the perfect amount of space and things to do for our 16-person group. We got to cook together, learn some things about the food, and have a great time eating our creations (who knew we could cook!)! Would highly recommend for other corporate team-building and outing activities.

Our company had a team building event with Jodi and it was fantastic. We had the opportunity to cook amazing food and learn about what we were cooking as well. Jodi and her staff are kind and knowledgeable about all cuisine. They made it fun for our group of about 16 people to eat, cook, and have some competition as well. I highly recommend anyone looking for a fun cooking experience to go see Jodi.

Thank you so much. As the first group kicking off our 10 year anniversary I was so impressed with your very talented and inspirational group. Not only did they participate in all our competitions with great enthusiasm but they were jamming on my piano and singing karaoke and taking fun to another level!! I wish you much success and hope to welcome you and your team back into our kitchen soon!
