EVOO Cooking School


PLAYING WITH FIRE is the name of a new series of semi-hands-on classes we are doing in our backyard wood fired oven (WFO) and wood fired grill! Each class culminates in a sit down LUNCH, outside, weather permitting. There are three food themes for these classes for some very happy back yard eating!

In this class we stoke up the wood fired back yard grill to make wood coals so we can take beautiful pieces of protein and grill them to perfection. Every class includes a medley of three types of meats appropriate for quick char grilling, such as beef, chicken, pork, lamb, ground meat sausage, and maybe even rabbit. (Oops, no, just kidding about that last one.)

Focus is on pizza! Not just any pizza, but the original, or so we think.  Napoli, Italy is credited as the home of the original pizzas, or shall we say, the inventors of pizza. And last summer when our WFO was producing many Neapolitan style pizzas, so many customers  remarked that ours was just as they remembered when visiting Napoli. And that for Chef Bob is the ultimate compliment.
Note: Today we will not be making substitutions for diet restrictions for gluten. To day we do not have a pizza dough made with alternative flour without gluten.

Private Events

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.
