If you enjoy private dining with a spectacular view and the opportunity to learn a little bit about cooking, then I highly recommend this dining experience. Jodi is a terrific teacher, cook and hostess and our group (a business get-together) had a wonderful time. And the food was every bit as good as you will find in area restaurants -... More

I have been to a number of cooking classes while on vacation and rarely go back to their menus. Often ingredients are difficult to find or they are over the top in an effort to do something no one else has done. Jodi made a meal for a Saturday evening dinner party or family Sunday supper. It is doable for... More

My family and I spent the night cooking with Jodi for Mom's 70th birthday. We all had a wonderful evening. The cooking instruction was entertaining and informative and the food was delicious! Jodi had so many helpful and clever hints regarding cooking and preparing meals for the novice chef to someone who knows their way around the kitchen. The setting... More

Jodi (and team) at Lajollacooks4u are rock stars. We recently held a team building event at her house, a beautiful setting in the hills above LaJolla. The beautiful setting and style of Jodi's home greeted us with an overwhelming sense that this was going to be a great experience, and it was. It was high quality everything and a perfectly... More

Our group of 8 bonded as a corporate team through hands-on cooking of elegant dishes, exploration of new ingredients, and good old fashioned clinking of wine glasses over the meal we prepared together. High performing teams are built on a foundation of trust and friendship. Through measuring, mixing, showing a little vulnerability in learning new things, and lots of laughs... More

Our family party of 10 adults spent a wonderful evening learning new cooking techniques and then eating a 5 star meal. Jodi is fun and a master at including everyone in the cooking experience.

I was lucky enough to have experienced this cooking class for a large group this past weekend, and it was amazing! It was definitely something I wouldn't have stumbled upon if I had booked the week myself - but so happy to have experienced it, because when we go back to San Diego, it's definitely going to be on my...

My daughter surprised me with, not only a mother/daughter trip to San Diego, but also cooking classes at Lajolla Cooks 4 u. It was so much fun and I highly recommend spending 4 hours with Jodi, in her beautiful home, cooking a meal from start to finish!
