San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
Lajollacooks4u, a San Diego hands-on culinary cooking company, was selected by Wyndham Jade, an event and travel company, to host the top performers for one of the country’s leading US’ banks.
Twenty participants gathered in the kitchen of Lajollacooks4u for a fabulous Farm-to-Table and Wine Pairing Cooking Class. Even an unusually La Jolla cold and cloudy day could not damper the groups’ enthusiasm.
The first wine pairing included a King Estates Pinot Gris with a gourmet olive oil and salt tasting that Lajollacooks4u Owner and Chef Jodi likes to begin her classes with. “This tasting sets the tone for a fun and interactive cooking class, allowing participants to learn about the foundation of Californian Cuisine,” Chef Jodi said.
With the cooking class underway, guests were hands-on as they helped prepare their delicious four-course meal. Homemade flour tortillas, Mango, Brie and Manchego Quesadillas got everyone into the spirit of cooking. Blackened Grilled Grouper Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream, Marinated Flank Steak with Chimi Churri Sauce and Quinoa with Black Beans and fresh corn completed the entrée. Lemon Crème Brule Tart with Fresh Raspberries and an Italian Moscato was served up for dessert.
“This was such a fabulous group; everyone was eager to participate, “Chef Jodi said. The four-hour class was one filled with much joy and each participant left with a commemorative apron and recipe cards.
