The Adventure Sisters Welcome You!

Everybody eats. Tasty Venues believes that the universal language of food is a way to bring people together. By exploring the delights of the table, we not only nourish our bodies, but we also nourish our spirits.

​Tasty Venues was established to share beautiful food and beautiful goods related to food in recognition of the connections we create around the shared table. 

We invite our community to join us in a delicious culinary adventure!

Dinner is available Tuesday through Saturday nights from 5 p.m. Unfortunately, until further notice British tea has been suspended. Chef Cinzia's Italian Traditional Sunday Dinner Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. completes the weekend's delicious options.

Cooking class parties, both hands on and demonstration style, provide an opportunity for you to eat and learn. After we make it through these challenging days, it will all return to our culinary events calendar.

Chef Cinzia will also resume private cooking lessons for children and adults.
