'17 MAY DINNER SHOW-HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY! this is an early start show
4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
What is a dinner show experience?
Picture yourself among the guests gathered around the chefs’ kitchen-bar as you watch them prepare three entrees paired with three wines, followed by a great dessert. Imagine a lively discussion about food and wine as you savor each plate. In the end, you leave satisfied wondering what you’ll do first—make some of the many new recipes at home, or start planning your return to enjoy another EVOO experience.
MONTHLY DINNER SHOWS reflect local seasonal ingredients that are put together into two or three courses plus dessert, and are designed to inspire guests with many new ideas for menus and dishes to recreate at home.
` All courses each evening are prepared before you with a lively exchange of food talk, and then you savor the plated results. (Alternatives for allergies and diet restrictions are made with advance notice.) A relaxing three hours later you leave satisfied wondering which of tonight’s dishes you will cook first!
Cost is inclusive of the pairings of each course wines. Menus are subject to availability and may change without notice.`
Our gift shop is open after the shows only for our dinner guests, and many of the ingredients and tools we use in the show are available for purchase.
