Perfect Sunny Day at Oregon Rail Heritage Center

When retiring from the Union Pacific Railroad, what better location than the Oregon Rail Heritage Center to throw a retirement party?  And when the host is busy with her job flying to and from her real estate office in Los Angeles, the professional event planners at Voila Catering make everything easy and the event smooth!

Starting with the schedule of the guest arrival, event activities, and planned guest departure time, our planners with Exec. Chef Tamara develop a menu featuring the fresh seasonal ingredients that will meet the all guest’s need for food.  The menu is carefully crafted based upon the kitchen facilities and policies of the Oregon Rail Heritage Center.  While the Rail Heritage Center does not have a kitchen, Voila Catering can bring our own commercial convection ovens and cook everything on-site for the ultimate in catering food quality.

Custom Seasonal Spring Menu at Rail Heritage Center

With the event going over the dinner period, most guests will be hungry and have the expectation that they will be served the equivalent of a meal.  This is particularly important when serving alcohol so your guests can enjoy the party and get home safe to their families.

This custom menu at the Oregon Rail Heritage Center features seasonal Spring ingredients including Wild Salmon, Spring Leeks, and local Asparagus and a hot soup in a demitasse cup to ward off the cool evening air.

At every large event, there are always guests with special dietary needs and it is important that everyone can enjoy some food at special events.  This menu included vegetarian, dairy free, and gluten free menu options for the guests.

While the typical catering company will send off a couple servers with trays of pre-made platters of food unwrapped on a buffet, the delicate food of Voila Catering is best when server passed to the guests.  Through out the event, our chef team is individually building the hors oeuvres so they are fresh and at their peak of quality.  And by not having a buffet of food at the end of the event, you save money by not buying food you did not need!
