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.
