With the great success of our ARTISAN BREAD MAKING I & II, we were hesitant to change it in any way. So ARTISAN BREAD MAKING is a combination of both.

Of course, the main objective is, as always, to inspire you with these four simple ingredients that with a little magic and your passionate attention turn into bread. And with just a few variations, it turns into an Italian style crusty exterior with most spongy interior to hold the olive oil; and sometimes it becomes a smooth butter rich egg-y texture that is slightly sweet as in French brioche; and sometimes, with fingers crossed, and the right training, we make a French baguette that is crusty enough to sand straight up in the air without bending and yet has an interior so soft and sweet that while still warm with butter transports us back to the banks of the Seine where we had our first baguette.

For now, while we are observing Covid-19 protocols, we are offering ARTISAN BREAD class as a virtual experience. You are to watch Bob and follow the steps together–you in your kitchen and Bob at EVOO. As always, we are limiting this experience to 6-10 students. The class will not be scheduled until we get a minimum of 6 students.

To participate in a “ZOOM” ARTISAN BREAD MAKING CLASS please call 503-436-8555 to speak with our Reservationist, Emily, for dates on the schedule. The price for this experience is $25. You will be instructed to buy some ingredients; make a starter or “bigi” a few days before your class date and go shopping for some other ingredients. You will receive an equipment list of items you will need.  


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.
