2015 Oregon Wine Experience Recap

From L to R: AZ crew members Jesse Hobart, Awna Zegzdryn, Johanna Hobart-Crane, Ana Byers and Kassia Zegzdryn.

The AZ Catering & Event Planning crew had so much fun participating in the 2015 Oregon Wine Experience fundraiser for the Children's Miracle Network, produced by Asante.  We served meals to approximately 1000 people in two days and had the time of our lives doing it.

The evening of Wednesday, August 19th, we paired twelve different appetizers with tastings of various medal-winning Oregon wines.  Hands down - the Jalapeno-Corn Fritters with Honey Butter were the crowd favorite, with the Rosemary-Parmesan Crackers w/ Cambazola & Fig Jam coming up a close second.

The Miracle Auction and Salmon Bake on Saturday, August 22nd was a winning dinner collaboration with Smithfield's and the Coquille Tribe.  It was the best possible way we could have kicked off our busy fall season, working with other amazing professionals to raise over $500,000  for the Children's Miracle Network.

Fresh salmon donated by the Coquille Tribe,  baking on cedar planks over an open fire.
