Foodies Delight: Lafayette Heads Back to the Table

The community turns out to celebrate the grand opening of the town’s new cooking school, Back to the Table.

Lafayette was hungry Thursday night, as a big crowd gathered at the opening night of .

The new cooking school, which also boasts a production kitchen available for rent, was started by sisters Lisa Evaristo and Leslie Pease. The sisters came up with the idea of the cooking school after a trip to Italy inspired them.

The school has 12 instructors who teach different classes ranging from “Evening in Tuscany” to “Cooking it up in College.” On Thursday night, the instructors set up tables outside with samples of their cooking for the community to taste. 

“I think it’s great, it’s unique, something different in this area. I’ve been impressed by everything I’ve tasted this evening,” said Lafayette resident Melaine Huth.

Suzy Quenneville-Orpin, who will be teaching a wide variety of classes including cupcake and cake decorating classes, said she was excited that Back to the Table was here and that it was convenient to have a cooking school in Lafayette.

Community seemed to be the theme of the night, with over 100 people from the area braving the heat to check out the new business. Attendees were impressed with the food, and the venue, especially the production kitchen.

“This really brings together the community of foodies here, whether you’re looking to cook at home or you’re a vendor,” said Kathleen Hackett of Lafayette. “The sense of community has already permeated with this first event.”
