Here at Lajollacooks4u, we not only host groups from around the country, but those internationally, as well!
This week, we greeted 18 members of the International Council of Payment Association Chief Executives (ICPACE), a group that brings together the CEO’s of payment associations from the US, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, South Africa and New Zealand. Every year, ICPACE meets to share ideas and exchange experiences on issues of concern to payment associations and their members, and they thought our venue would be a great way to come together and engage in a little friendly competition!
Upon arrival, the group broke into three teams to each create a fabulous California cuisine menu, complete with wine pairing. Everyone had a fantastic time collaborating together, bonding over food and drink and taking in the beautiful views overlooking La Jolla.
Jane, the leader of the group, even purchased Chef Jodi’s cookbook for each of the couples as a memento of the unforgettable evening! She said, “The whole international crew had a blast, and the cookbooks made an amazing gift!”
Much thanks to ICPACE for joining us, as well as to one of our partners, Hello California – a national destination management company – for scheduling this great event!
