Local residents of Oregon's scenic wine country know a secret - we have fantastic local barbecue! Haagenson's Catering, a part of McMinnville's Ribslayer BBQ-to-go, is a full service food and licensed beverage caterer. Chef Haagenson has over 25 years of experience in food service, and those who frequent his shop on McMinnville's 3rd Street know the fantastic food is able to create and the great smell of his cooking when you walk in the door! Our winery used Haagenson's Catering for a food and wine pairing event in July of 2011, and we were delighted with the ability to match great food with just the right wine in our party. Just as important, Craig Haagenson was there to make sure the service was smooth, and our guests loved talking with him as he cooked and presented the food. The party was a complete success, and the food was a perfect compliment to our wine products, helping us to sell more wine at our great BBQ event. Our winery will definitely be using Haagenson's Catering at future events for our customers. One of the great things about Haagenson's Catering is their ability to scale price, serice, and menu specifically to your event. Having a low-key family gathering? Consider some yummy pulled pork sandwiches! Going upscale? Consider his fantastic lamb dishes or excellent grilled mushrooms. Going big? They say it best on their website: ""Your guests will know the situation is serious when we roll up to your event with a 25-foot, 9,000-pound smoker."" And they no doubt will, with the delicious smells of BBQ coming off this rig!
