wood-fired pizzAs

Wood-fired pizzas. There isn't much more that needs to be said, but we'll elaborate. Renaissance imported a portable wood-fired pizza oven from Italy just so Kris can provide you with the most authentic pizza possible. He kneads, tosses, sauces and serves pizzas like the traditional margherita but, he also likes to explore a variety of fun flavors including creamy alfredo sauce, Oregon clams, pancetta and sage. The best part about portable pizza ovens is that Renissance Catering can make pizzas for one to hundreds of people.


Cooking ClAsses

There are cooking classes that are fun, but Renaissance Catering cooking classes are an experience (and fun). Kris will provide you with the tools, recipes and skills to successfully carry out his Northwest inspired dishes for you to share with your friends and family. He'll start by introducing you to the local fare of products/produce and where to find them. Next, you'll learn to how to showcase the natural flavors and finally pair the meal with nothing other than the perfect Oregon wine. Renaissance Catering provides private customized cooking classes for groups or individuals year round.

Kris and his wife Emily married in the summer of 2013 and have been catering weddings for several years. They know, first and foremost, this is a special day for you. After all of the weddings they've done, they learned that the best meal is the one that reflects exactly who you are. Kris could give you a list of options and tout all of our top of the line choices, but he'd rather have a chance to sit down with you, hear your story as a couple and go from there.


Renaissance Catering can serve hundreds or they can serve two. It comes down to how you want to spend your day and what you'd like to serve the people you love the most. Contact Kris to make an appointment.
