The Culinary Center in Lincoln City invites you to take a trip back in time — a time when the Pixie Kitchen, a beloved long-lost restaurant, delighted kids and families with its signature menu. Learn the secret behind one of their most popular items from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at the Pixie Kitchen Secret Recipe Demo.
The Culinary Center, in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Lincoln City, will recreate delicious items, including authentic Pixie Kitchen Cole Slaw, angel food cake (courtesy of My Petite Sweet) and their legendary Cod Balls. Served with Wheat Thins, the secret recipe for the Cod Balls will be unveiled for lucky participants of this demo class.
“The Cod Balls were a popular item on the Pixie Kitchen menu,” Culinary Center Manager Donna Riani said. “Over the past few years, I have gotten many requests on how to make them. Well, here is your chance to learn the recipe! We will show you how to make this delicious dish. Step back in time and enjoy a great meal with us.”
The Kiwanis Club of Lincoln City promises that this will be no ordinary demo class. Authentic Pixie Kitchen memorabilia such as cookbooks, cut out displays, fun house mirrors, and maybe even a Pixie or two will grace the Culinary Center stage. Milt Johnson, Chairperson of the Kiwanis Club Pixiefest Committee, is grateful for the opportunity to showcase the Pixie Kitchen.
“The Culinary Center of Lincoln City has been a major partner in bringing Pixie Kitchen and Pixieland back from the past,” Milt Johnson said. “Donna literally recreated the taste of Pixie Kitchen through her diligent research, interviews with family members and talks with former employees. We are grateful to her for hosting this culinary event and sharing some of the secrets of Pixie Kitchen.”
Tickets are $40 per person, which includes the meal and Willamette Valley Vineyards wine. Seats are limited and can be purchased online at CulinaryCenterLincolnCity.com.
The demo class serves as an appetizer for Pixiefest, June 29-30. Held on the athletic field at Taft High School, the family-friendly event returns to Lincoln City with new and improved prices, entertainment and more.
