San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
Epitourean, one of the United States’ largest tour operators specializing exclusively in culinary travel, paid a recent site visit to Lajoilacooks4u – a personalized hands-on gourmet cooking and dining experience and one of Epitourean’s top California-based tour destinations.
Epitourean was represented by Jane Hoagland, the company’s National Culinary Travel Specialist. For Hoagland, the onsite visit to Lajollacooks4u was an opportunity to personally experience the setting, the food and the adventure Epitourean’s customers take away from their time at Lajollacooks4u.
“We have been collaborating with Lajollacooks4u for several years now,” Hoagland said. “Founder and Chef of Lajollacooks4u, Jodi Abel, not only offers phenomenal service, but our clients continually tell us how professional she is and what a wonderful experience Chef Jodi provides; and now I see why,” Hoagland added.
Hoagland said that it’s wonderful to actually see Chef Jodi in action and visit her stunning venue and kitchen. “She makes cooking look so effortless and delicious”, Hoagland said. Chef Jodi served up a lunch for Hoagland that included a Tomato, Pesto and three Cheese Tart, Grilled Blackened Salmon, Edaname, and Garbanzo Bean Salad with Lime Vinaigrette. Dessert was a Streusel Coffee Cake with a Cream Cheese Glaze.
Lajollacooks4u and Epitourean agree that Lajollacooks4u serves as an excellent choice when it comes to corporate team-building. “That will be one of our focal points for selling Lajollacooks4u to our customers this year,” Hoagland said.
