Explore your Culinary Side in Lincoln City
The Culinary Center in Lincoln City is a great place to explore your culinary side. From cook-offs to classes there’s something to fit everyone’s experience level.
How about a company team-building class or a private class for your friends or family? The Culinary Center can arrange a cooking experience just for your group!
The Culinary Center features seasonally-inspired cooking and focuses on the abundant foods of the Pacific Northwest. They feature locally grown and raised foods…from organic vegetables to grass-fed natural meats, prairie-raised chickens, and of course, the Oregon coast’s vast array of fresh seafood and shellfish. The Culinary Center also strengthens the connection between food producers and the consumer…through a field trip to an oyster farm or having a farmer help teach a class.

Classes for Everyone
Our classes offer a wide array of subjects and cuisines. In a demonstration class it’s your job to sit back, relax, and enjoy the wonderful food and wine while you learn from a pro. Or dive right into one of our hands-on classes…from pasta-making to fish cookery, dim sum, tamales, pizza, sushi, and even pickling and canning our Oregon harvest in the summer and fall.
Custom Classes and Events
Planning a family outing to the beach? With enough notice the Culinary Center can arrange a class or event just for you. Is your company looking for a fun teambuilding experience? Break out of your normal environment and into the kitchen to develop teamwork and build morale.
The Cook-off “Capital”
The Culinary Center is home to four cook-offs a year: Jambalaya, Fish Taco, Wild Mushroom, and Chowder, all featuring Pacific Northwest ingredients. These free, festival-like events are a great way to try out some of our great coastal restaurants.
