Food by Ember & Vine
"Ember and Vine is the marriage between owners Sean and Mary's two loves, smoked foods and wine.
When Sean and Mary moved to Portland, Oregon in early 2006, from their teeny tiny apartment in San Francisco, they finally had the freedom (and yard) to buy a real grill. Before even unpacking a single box in their new home, Sean spent his first day in Oregon researching grills. He bought his first grill and was hooked from the start. A year later he realized he wasn't satisfied and ventured into the world of wood fired smokers. He purchased his first smoker, and the rest is history.
Mary, knowing one cannot live on smoked meats alone (true story), began getting creative with the things they cooked. Instead of dogs and burgers, they started experimenting with various things to smoke. Her background in wine led her to begin getting creative with pairing wine with their wood fired creations. The passion grew and so did their inventory smokers (they now have four). The bug finally grew in the couple to begin competing in barbecue competitions, and eventually branching out into catering. They specialize in food and wine pairing, and creating wood fired experiences for the wine industry and beyond." Ember & Vine
Art by Clement Lee
"Clement Lee, an expressive abstract painter, born in China, grew up in Hong Kong, lived in Brazil and finally settled down in the United States.
His style of painting reflects his unique background with energetic, gestural brushstrokes of Chinese calligraphy, the warm colors of Brazil and the looseness and boldness of the American Abstract Expressionism.
He and his wife now live in Pacific Northwest, in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon." Clement Lee
