So this happened.

Oregon Wine Press September 2015We are featured in this month’s Oregon Wine Press!!!!!

If you’ve been following along here you know that this summer Sean and I have been cooking at various events (from barbecue competitions, private catering, large events like this, and even pop-up food truck style events). It’s now official, and we’d like to introduce you to Ember and Vine.

We’re so honored Peter Szymczak interviewed us for this article. This is a big deal to us! In it Szymczak chatted with five catering companies that focus on wine country events. The fun twist is that all five are husband and wife teams! There’s just something about wine and food that brings couples together to want to start a business I guess.

If you’re local you can find OWP in several locations throughout the state, or you can access the full article here.

Here’s the section on us.

Ember and Vine featured in Oregon Wine Press

Thank you so much to Peter Szymczak and Oregon Wine Press for featuring us. We are truly honored. We also want to thank Del Munroe for the awesome photos. We love them!

For more information on Ember and Vine check out our new website. The site is still brand new and we’re still working some stuff out and will be adding more pages in the near future, but we welcome any feedback on it (just be gentle please)!

August 27, 2015

We’ve had a pretty hot summer, by Portland standards that is. There were several days where I couldn’t even bare to turn on the grill let alone the stove (shocking!). On days like that we either enjoyed cold salads or simple appetizers, like this delicious beauty below. Over on Wine4.Me I shared one of my […]

Smoked Pulled Pork Hash

August 21, 2015

This is how people who are obsessed with smoking meats do brunch. Portland is pretty famous for its brunch scene. But we have four-year-old twins, which means we’re not going out for brunch that often. Not that we don’t want to (we do!), but waiting in any kind of line for brunch (and Portland brunch […]

Smoked Pulled Pork Wontons

August 19, 2015

Sometimes some of the best meals are made from leftovers. What could be better than pork shoulder, perfectly smoked, finely pulled, juicy and tender? Using the leftovers to make these Smoked Pulled Pork Wontons. Well, I suppose that statement is arguable. Freshly pulled pork is pretty darn awesome. But I can say, without a doubt, […]

2015 Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon — the scoop!

August 12, 2015

Smoked Pork Ribs with Asian Spice Rub

August 5, 2015

By contributing writer, Sean “The Hubby” Barbecue can be a very subjective experience, especially if your lens for barbecue style foods is heavily influenced by one of the BBQ classical regions like the Carolinas, Memphis, or Texas.  That said, the technique for getting tender meat and smoky flavor can be an incredible canvas when looking […]
