"Great Experience! Jodi gave us good advice and some wonderful recipes." Terry Whaley

Lajollacooks4u, a hand-on cooking and dining experience, was selected by four members of the Professionals of the Culinary Arts to enrich their cooking skills.
Carolyn Wyly, president of PCA said she enjoyed the entire experience. “It’s important to capture the different styles of preparation and cooking all over the United States,” said Wyly. “LaJollacooks4u gave us this opportunity and also provided the environment for a true hands-on cooking experience in a home kitchen,” she said.
Wyly was joined by PCA board member, Terry Whaley, and by PCA members Mary Burnell and Elias Rodriguez, who owned a Mexican restaurant in Houston.
The group cooked a Fall-inspired menu of Roasted Pumpkin Soup with Floating Parmesan Baskets, Salad with Roasted Beets, Haricot Verts and Fennel in a Champagne Vinaigrette and Focaccia infused with Truffle Oil and Peptia Pesto followed. The main dishes were Herb Crusted Pacific Halibut with a Caper Vinaigrette and Rack of Lamb in a Herb Dijon Marinade. Dessert included Pears Blanched in White Wine with a Pecan Crumble and Chocolate Salami! The group engaged in cooking together and then dined on the delicious meal they learned to prepare complete with wines that were paired with the meal!
