Welcome to EVOO
Our EVOO Mission hasn’t changed since we opened in 2004, to create menus and dishes that inspire guests to cook them again at home, while dining and enjoying the hospitality of community in our intimate space. As you may have heard by now, all gatherings are being reduced to 10 or less, and all of us are urged to practice “social distancing,” which couldn’t be more opposite to our mission.
When the CDC and local health authorities first published increased food safety procedures, we immediately added them to our already substantial procedures. Then as circumstances have changed by the hour, we have decided to cancel shows and close our shop into mid April for now. We believe that this is the best decision for us, our guests and our staff, though we don’t move into this decision lightly. All of us have been impacted, and our hope is for all to stay healthy and support each other and our communities.
For those whose reservations are cancelled,
we are offering rainchecks to use at a later date.
Stay strong and healthy.
Bob and Lenore
EVOO events celebrate the Pacific NW bounty of our rivers, ocean, fields, trees and vines and the people who harvest our foods. Chefs Lenore and Bob Neroni invite you to their dinner show to both entertain and inspire you. In a world of supersized and/or processed foods, you rediscover the joys of fresh local flavors prepared with simplicity and style. During the show we focus on cooking techniques and methods rather than recipes. You’ll find our recipes by selecting “Cookbook” on the navigation-bar above.
During the evening we welcome your questions as we discuss tips and best practices for food safety, choosing ingredients, kitchen equipment, mise en place, and a well stocked pantry. You will enjoy and discuss our wine pairing suggestions from a chef’s perspective, and, of course, while at our table, we hope to demonstrate the benefits of a congenial dining environment.
Remember there’s always lots to eat and learn at EVOO,
so we urge you to come hungry for both.
