FoodHub has members who grow food, who cook food, who process food, who deliver food, and now, as we excitedly welcome one of our newest members, EVOO Cannon Beach Cooking School, who teach food!
Bob Neroni and Lenore Emery fell in love with Cannon Beach twenty years ago. In 2004, they left behind corporate careers in the food industry in Seattle, moved to Cannon Beach and opened EVOO (named for their favorite staple, Extra Virgin Olive Oil), where they have since taught hundreds of classes together on everything from handmade pasta to knife skills to Seafood 101.
Guests of EVOO are treated to fun, informal classes featuring fresh seasonal ingredients—right now, that means fiddlehead ferns, asparagus, morels, scallops and pea vines. Believers in the Slow Food movement, Neroni and Emery offer classes that focus not just on food, but also on the experience of preparing meals together. And thanks to FoodHub, Neroni and Emery can more easily fill their guests’ plates with Oregon’s finest ingredients, helping EVOO dish out fabulous meals on the Oregon Coast for many years to come.
