Surrounded by Family from Destinations Afar

"Excellent experience and great way to celebrate my Aunt's Birthday!
Beverly Rolf van de Velde

Lajollacooks4u, a gourmet , hands-on cooking class and dining experience, based in La Jolla, CA, was the recent  destination for Chuck Brummer and his wife, Carol Brummer, as they celebrated Carol’s birthday in style with family who traveled from St. Louis, Philadelphia and Central California to participate in a two-day adventure filled with cooking and farmer market tours.

La Jolla, a suburb of San Diego, has long been a top destination for tourists with its idyllic Mediterranean climate, quaint shops and its beaches. Now the location getaway is also becoming a popular culinary getaway, thanks, in part, to Lajollacooks4u - the number one ranked tour destination on Trip Advisor.

Chuck Brummer wanted to create a unique environment and atmosphere as a celebration for his wife’s birthday. Since Carol is not only passionate about food and cooking, she is also an extraordinary cook. This led Chuck to think outside the box and consequently he came up with the idea of a culinary weekend celebration at Lajollacooks4u.

The celebration began last weekend as all nine participants began prepping their meal under the guidance of Chef Jodi, founder and owner of Lajollacooks4u. The group learned to prepare Focaccia di Recco, Roasted Tomato Sauce with fresh Burrata, Farro with Wild Mushrooms, and Herb Crusted Sea Bass in Caper Vinaigrette.

The following day everyone gathered at the La Jolla Farmer's Market while Chef Jodi guided them on selecting locally-grown produce to cook up a delicious Latin-themed meal for lunch. The homemade tortillas were a huge hit, in addition to the Blackened Halibut in a Vera Cruz Sauce which came out superbly. 

“We certainly enjoyed ourselves; the food and the hospitality of your beautiful home were very much appreciated,” said Chuck Brummer. Chuck added that some of the guests were so inspired that they have already prepared some of the recipes and techniques learned while at Lajollacooks4u. “The recipes are now being shared with family members that could not attend our celebration,” Chuck said.

Lajollacooks4u, founded in 2008, provides a unique and intimate activity for couples, corporate team building and any foodie looking for a cooking and culinary experience in an ideal setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Based in La Jolla, a suburb of San Diego, CA, Lajollacooks4u has enjoyed record growth since its inception and has been ranked the number one tour in La Jolla on the world’s largest travel review site, Trip Advisor.
