Remarkable Comments

Hi Sharon,

I wanted to let you know the event last night was AMAZING! We ended up with 25, the seating was perfect. Patti and Donna did an excellent job, the two volunteers were so great. Every attendee had nothing but wonderful comments.

I would highly recommend any group consider the facility or take part in one of your scheduled events.

Thanks Sharon, please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

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, pizza, sushi, and even pickling and canning our Oregon harvest in the summer and fall.

Custom Classes and Events

The Cook-off “Capital”

The Culinary Center is home to three cook-offs: Jambalaya, Fish Taco, and Wild Mushroom, all featuring Pacific Northwest ingredients. These free, festival-like events are a great way to try out some of our great coastal restaurants.
