Blue Sky Sea Salt is almost on our shelves! Look for it in February. We are happy that Dr. Philip Harding of OSU would like us to submit our salt project to his senior engineers again this coming year so that they can continue proving that a sustainable Pacific sea salt product is possible.
SLOGAN CONTEST WINNERS! You know the saying, be careful what you wish for? We experienced an over the top response, with so many award winning entries that we are awarding more than one prize! We just plain couldn't choose just one. Our goal is to use the winning entries throughout the celebration of this our first decade year! See shout outs for the winners.
At a recent dinner show a guest said he was a "culinary-voyeur," meaning one who just likes to watch cooking. Previously we had heard that nowadays more time is spent watching network cooking shows than actually cooking. However, it is also a great time to be a true "FOODIE!" You know those who cook, talk about food, plan the next meal before the current one is done! EVOO has something for ALL culinary types!
As we see it there are three sub groups who fit the FOODIE title:the recipe-dependent; the culinary-confident; and those who do the dishes just to have a great meal. Head for our BACKSTAGE on our website if any of these descriptors match you.
For the recipe-dependent we suggest the CULINARY BASICS SERIES. This one meets you where you are on your own journey and takes you as far as possible each day of this four day, six hour a day, series. Yes, that is 24 hours of almost one-on-one skill building and recipe weaning!
For anyone who is ready to cross over from pot scrubber to cook, we encourage your participation in CULINARY BASICS and ARTISAN BREAD MAKING. You see, there are no pre requisites required, no previous experience needed; just bring in your desire to learn and we will make that happen. And artisan bread making is a great way to cross over from voyeur to participant, too.
Next for the culinary confident, we believe you are ready to join Bob and team for a full day of food prep before the dinner show. Become our SOUS CHEF FOR A DAY! You help with all the behind the scenes tasks that get us ready for the show. You do lots of prepping so recipes may be finished at the show. Look at this experience as a good way to set yourself up for success at your next dinner party. As SOD you will learn ways to streamline last minute tasks and make short work of the actual prep required to put dinner on the table at home.
And lastly, the Culinary-Voyeurs who like it that way! Our monthly dinner shows are just right for you, but be advised your might fall prey to inspiration to pick up a knife or pot, and the next thing you know, you are signing up for one of our hands-on classes!
And as for the scheduled Dinner Shows format, remember there is something that everyone can learn by watching! So keep watching our Dinner Shows and feel free to join us BACKSTAGE when you want to get your hands dirty.
