AUGUST DINNER SHOW 2017
AUGUST DINNER SHOW PRELUDE
Everyday Chef Bob sources out the freshest most seasonal and best ingredients he can find. All year he works with a co-op of farms sourcing the Oregon farms from coast to the valley for organic ingredients. Bob & Lenore helped start our local Tuesday market here in town for local residents.
So all summer the freshest and best looking produce, proteins, cheeses, herbs, and edible flowers are abundantly available in our wonderful state.
No matter what time of year our goal has always been to provide inspiration for our guests to shop their local farmers markets and incorporate what is fresh in their daily menus.
Our dinner menus are paired with a flight of wines, beers, and alcoholic alternatives such as vignette sodas and san Pellegrino. Decaf coffee and full bodied espresso are offered with dessert. Because our menus may change without notice, please report your allergy, medical restrictions as well as your self-imposed dietary restrictions at the time of booking. We will make every effort to accommodate.

AUGUST FARMERS MARKET BUFFETS
In general, market dinners include all the accoutrements found at family dinners which allow us to demonstrate more options and casual presentations. We include fresh house-made pickled vegetables, favorite one dish items, and always plenty of fresh vegetables, proteins, grains and beans.
Our goal is to inspire guests to shop at their local FARMERS MARKETS and to incorporate what’s fresh & seasonal into their daily menus, much like we did to before WWII. Many continue that tradition today, thanks to the rise of local family farms and markets. We enjoy this opportunity to honor the circle that starts on the farms and closes in our kitchens and at our table with friends and family.

Any of our shows or class experiences can be designed just for your private party. (*) Imagine having a room of your friends watching and dining during the Dinner Show or with aprons on and hands into the dough during a private PASTA 101 semi-hands-on class. Private experiences can be arranged by speaking directly with one of our representatives. See our suggestions for a private event page to learn more about the possibilities.
(*)Private groups of ten or less may join the regular scheduled classes and are expected to pay the regular price per person, gratuity optional. Groups of 11 or more constitute a private event, and our pricing for those experiences depends upon the date, number in the party, type of experience, and of course, the menu. A service fee is always applied.
