From the award winning kitchens of Seattle chef Tom Douglas, "Rub with Love" spice rubs and sauces are a delicious way to add flavor to your home cooking. Whether your plans involve a low and slow stroll with your barbecue or a quick week night trip to the grill or sauté pan, just a little Rub with Love is all you need to make any meal a hit.
Tom created his line of spice rubs to bring confidence in the kitchen to the home cook with restaurant tested flavors. Each easy to use rub has a suggested recipe on the jar, but each rub is highly versatile and can be used in many different applications.
The love he puts into making his spice rubs is the same as the care and effort he puts into the food he serves at his restaurants. Each ingredient is thoughtfully sourced and combined in small batches at their facility in Seattle to create the perfect spice blend to enhance any meal at home!
*All rubs are gluten free and vegetarian. All sauces are suitable for vegetarians.
Tom Douglas has been cooking up PNW cuisine in Seattle since 1984, opening his own restaurant, Dahlia Lounge, in 1989. For the last 30 years, he’s made a name for himself alongside business partner and wife Jackie Cross and business partner (since 2006) Eric Tanaka by opening 13 full-service restaurants; an event space, Palace Ballroom; a cooking school, Hot Stove Society; and a product line including rubs, sauces, mustards, and knives. The James Beard Outstanding Restaurateur, self-described as “middle-aged, tall, and round,” can be found at any of his restaurants on a given day putting in the work to create a successful restaurant group. As he reminds himself and his staff, “no one can out effort us."
Tom first introduced Rub with Love after being asked countless times to reveal the secret ingredient in Etta’s Spice Rubbed Salmon. Since then, he has created a whole range of fresh, handcrafted, versatile rubs, barbecue and teriyaki sauces, and mustards that add a flavorful kick and a whole lot of love to just about any meat, fish or vegetable!
