With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Lajollacooks4u offers one of the most creative escapes for companies looking to bond with their team members. Lajollacooks4u’s hands-on team-building cooking events combine competition, collaboration and delicious California cuisine, and are all completely customized to create a one-of-a-kind experience for every team that visits its La Jolla-based venue. And this year, Founder and Chef Jodi Abel will be providing a special Valentine’s Day menu for her guests to prepare and enjoy.

Each cooking challenge begins as guests participate in various ice breakers and interactive games. From there, team members are divided into teams and guided by Chef Jodi’s staff as they compete against each other in creating several different menu items. Teams are judged by taste, presentation and teamwork, and ultimately compete to be the winner with the most points. There is even a marketing “infomercial” component, which involves each team collaborating on how to best “sell” their menu item to the judges. Once all teams have completed their recipes, participants reconvene to enjoy the gourmet meals they co-produced, all while recognizing that their success was based on teamwork.

“For twelve years, we’ve enjoyed bringing team members together and helping them create lasting memories,” said Abel. “And what better time to do so than Valentine’s Day?”
