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."

Don’t let the name fool you
It’s not as much cooking school as it is watch the chef and crew cook and serve you fabulous food while providing wonderful tips on cooking, seasoning and ingredients. What a great evening! Thank you Bob, Lenore and staff.
best time on our vacation
Our class/dinner at EVOO was the most fun on our vacation. Entertaining, funny and informative. Food and wine were both excellent. They went out of their way to accomodate anyone who had food issues. for instance, my wife does not eat beef or pork so they made her an extra dish.
Lovely food, fun evening...
EVOO is a fun dining experience in Canon Beach. The food was delightful; Bob was very engaging. The rating of average is because the wine pours were stingy; slightly more than a tasting pour and much less than a full pour. We watched regulars getting refilled yet the bottle was walked by us without an acknowledgment. When we asked for a pour, the request was ignored For the spendy price of $150/per person, we didn't expect to have to argue for a pour of red with dessert (which we were told didn't pair with the dessert - it did). We received a stingy taste. Great food yet the hospitality was average, at best.
In 2015, I wrote a glowing Trip Advisor review of EVOO, and after our most recent visit, would like to attest to the superb quality of food preparation and presentation, service, and overall hospitality that EVOO has maintained over the eight years we've been attending its dinner shows, which is no mean feat. Bravo Chefs Bob and Lenore, and your team!
EVOO Keeps on Giving
We’ve been coming to EVOO for 12 years. The show, the food, and Bob/Lenore keep evolving. This week we picked up three new tips that we will use regularly at home. Over the years the way we shop, cook and eat has been heavily influenced by what we have learned at the dinner shows. AND, as we have increased our whole food, plant based diet, so has EVOO. I can’t eat all the food they serve, but it’s always the best meal I’ve had in months.
