My wife (Sheila) planned this event, a one night cooking school, as a surprise for our family when we met in San Diego for a weekend last month. Our kids like to cook so "she" thought it would be great to do something more immersive and fun than just going out to dinner somewhere in La Jolla. Wow did she... More

This event will be the highlight of your vacation,group event or special night out in La Jolla. I can't think of one way to improve upon our evening. Imagine enjoying a five course dinner with gorgeous table settings that you help prepare in a private home. Not just a demonstration but full involvement in the cooking. Recipes that aren't overly...

Took my corporate team of 12 to Lajollacooks4u while at a business meeting in San Diego. The team really enjoyed themselves. Jodi's home is lovely with stunning views. She was extremely well organized and very accommodating to our various food allergies/requirements. (Even last minute New Years cleanses and diets she was able to accommodate!) We spent the first half of... More

I called Jodi in November with the hopes to surprise my husband and son, who is in college and interested in the hospitality, cooking field, with a private cooking class. Unfortunately she was booked, but after moving her travels, she made room for us, and created an unbelievable East Indian menu, that we are still raving about. She paired wines... More

Jodi's home offered a spectacular setting for our team of 10 to celebrate the year and enjoy an afternoon together. The best of San Diego views, a gorgeous table setting, and a lively cooking experience made a day of wining and dining just that much MORE fun! Jodi's ground-up approach to cooking offers cooks at any level a fresh look... More

My friend Jason & I love to cook, to try new experiences, & to learn in the process. I thought cooking classes...while on vacation! After some research on TripAdvisor I found Jodi, made reservations...super-easily, & heard from her personally to confirm. So impressive! Much better than any dining experience in a restaurant!!!!!! Thanks Jodi!

We were five couples and every one of us had a great evening. Don't be fooled by Jodi's easy-going style, we all worked and learned a few tricks about food preparation. One of the couples once owned a restaurant, and they even picked up a few tips. Bring your own wine to bring down costs, and do not be afraid... More
