Rooted Table - Fresh Pasta Dinner

  • The Riv Espresso Bar & Cafe 410 East 10th Street The Dalles, OR, 97058 United States (map)

Rooted Event Company is a community minded event planner and coordinator based out of The Dalles, Oregon. We specialize in organizing free local events, ticketed dinners, intimate gatherings, and small weddings. 

This is a ticketed event! Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite or our Facebook event page!

We invite you to join us at the Rooted table for the very first of many limited seat community dinners that bring something unique and fresh to The Dalles food scene! We will keep the guest list below 20 in order to give everybody a chance to get to know each other and relax in an intimate dinner setting. 

This event is BYOW. If you'd like to enjoy wine with dinner, please drop your bottle of wine off at the counter when you arrive so we can open it and let it breathe before bringing it to the table for you to enjoy during the meal! 

Once you arrive, please enter through the courtyard entrance. We invite our guests over 21 to pick up a complimentary glass of sparkling wine at the counter, then feel free to mix and mingle with the other diners around the shared appetizer board as we put the finishing touches on the meal!  

Once all diners have arrived we will be seated at the community table in the heart of the candlelit old stone church sanctuary and enjoy a delicious fresh pasta meal served family style together! 


This is not your average kale salad! We massage fresh, crisp kale until the bitter green is transformed into a silky, delectable version of its former self, toss it with a fresh garlicky lemon dressing, and top it off with shredded parsnips, sweet apple, and toasted sunflower seeds.

Our pork ragu is the meaty, flavorful product of an entire day well spent in the kitchen. We know the secret ingredient to a flavorful sauce is time, so we spend the day roasting the pork to tender perfection before mixing it into the lovingly handcrafted sauce simmering away on the stovetop and let the flavors get to know each other in the pot until it's time to eat!

We do our fresh pappardelle pasta noodles the right way, lovingly handmaking each of our noodles from scratch. We mix our pasta dough with the highest quality ingredients we can find, knead it by hand, let it rest, roll it into thin sheets, cut it into the wide strips characteristic of pappardelle, and boil it to the perfect al dente texture before mixing it in with our pork ragu and topping it off with a hefty helping of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Plenty of food will be provided for all, but be sure to save a little room for dessert!

Crisp cannoli shells are filled with our homemade sweet ricotta and chocolate chip filling; just like Nonna used to make it!
