Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting Acadia Pharmaceuticals, a biopharmaceutical company headquartered in San Diego. Sales Manager Chris Donahue brought seven members of her newly formed sales team for a fun and collaborative team-building evening, hoping that each team member would get to know each other better and connect outside the workplace.
The night started with our signature olive oil and salt tasting, and was followed by the group dividing into two teams, each set to compete against each other in preparing a four-course meal. Each team then got to work, having a great time preparing the menu items and bonding over the delicious food and wine.
When the event came to a close, Chris purchased a cookbook for each one of her team members to keep as a memento of the unforgettable experience they all shared.
Said Peter, one of Acadia’s team members, “It starts with location, and an awe-inspiring location above La Jolla. Add a beautiful home, a gourmet kitchen and hospitality for days, and you have a small picture of an evening with Chef Jodi. Our recently formed sales team spent a few hours with Chef Jodi and her hard-working crew and came away a tighter group, with a better understanding of each other (including all our food allergies), full of phenomenal food and wine … and maybe a feeling that we were far better cooks than most of us truly are. Absolutely recommend as a special experience in the San Diego area!”
Thank you, Acadia. We look forward to seeing you back in our kitchen again soon!
