Palace Kitchen, Seattle
celebrating Tom Douglas' Redhook BBQ Sauces

Executive chef Tom Douglas of the Palace Kitchen, and chef Sean Hartley, both relish the challenge of cooking with hoppy beers. In fact, the Seattle chef even bottled a BBQ sauce with beer.

Tom Douglas' Redhook ESB Barbecue Sauce with Smoked Chilies and Honey is one of three varieties of bottled sauce launched this year.

"A bitter ESB can withstand the heat of smoked chipotle chiles and the acidity of the tomatoes," Hartley says and so the ESB chipotle honey BBQ sauce is one of his personal favorites.

Accents of cumin, cilantro and smoked chilies are combined with fragrant fireweed honey, balanced by the rich, round flavors of Redhook's ESB, for a classic tomato-based barbecue sauce.

The Palace Kitchen features lots of bar food, grilled meats and fish, in a lush setting filled with Pacific Northwest art and sculpture. Pam pats chef Tom on the back and beams

In July, Tom Douglas and Pam Hinckley, marketing VP for Redhook Brewery, put on a festive BBQ and beer party, to celebrate the sauces startup.
