The Culinary Center in Lincoln City invites you to take a trip back in time to when the beloved Pixie Kitchen restaurant delighted kids and families with their signature menu. Learn the secret behind one of their most popular items on Saturday, June 22, from 1 to 3 pm at the Pixie Kitchen Secret Recipe Demo.

The Culinary Center in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Lincoln City, will recreate delicious items in this demo class, including authentic Pixie Kitchen Cole Slaw and angel food cake courtesy of My Petite Sweet. Culinary Center Manager Donna Riani will also unveil the secret recipe and the now legendary Cod Balls.

“The Cod Balls were a popular item on the Pixie Kitchen menu,” she 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 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.

“The Culinary Center of Lincoln City has been a major partner in bringing Pixie Kitchen and Pixieland back from the past,” said Milt Johnson, chairperson of the Kiwanis Club Pixiefest Committee. “Donna has 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 booked online at

The demo class serves as the perfect appetizer for Pixiefest, which will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 29 and 30, on the athletic field at Taft High School. This family-friendly event returns to Lincoln City with new and improved prices, entertainment and more. Learn more at
