SCHOOL LUNCH of your dreams!

Lunch is back at EVOO again this summer.  Since we are a cooking school, most of our menu item recipes are on line in our cookbook.

Lunch at the Chefs Bar, in 3-Courses, Price-fixed $39, served at 12 noon when scheduled (dates listed below); seats can be reserved by phone or in our store. Vegetarian option always available. We call this school lunch because it is Chefs’ (teachers’) choice and made fresh, wholesome and very tasty. You might say, it is the school lunch of your dreams! Beverages are additional at shelf prices. There are only 12 seats and one seating at 12 noon lasting till about 1:30, so plan ahead and call to get your seats.
Or you might enjoy the best of A LA CARTE menu. Read about it here.

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.
