EVOO has a simple, straight forward philosophy when it comes to food. A few simple rules serve as their guidelines for the home cook or the professional. Learn the cooking basics, and cook in the seasons, utilizing the freshest and most flavorful local ingredients. EVOO believes the basic kitchen "wardrobe" is important, too. A good knife or two, a cutting board and great cookware will increase the cook’s enjoyment and satisfaction. Sure there is a certain amount of satisfaction when cooking around a campfire, with only a pot, a spoon and a twig, because everything tastes good on a camping trip, but nobody would want to do that everyday. The space at EVOO offers a well-dressed kitchen that promises to enhance the student’s cooking experience and further demonstrate the concept of "right tool for the job."
