Take-Home Chef

Celebrity Chef Kent Rathbun (of Abacus, Jasper’s, Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen and Zea Woodfire Grill) would like to come home with you ... well, kind of. This “Iron Chef” winner recently debuted his Elements line of 11 sauces, rubs and salts. Rathbun’s signature, intense flavors are all packaged up and ready to go; all you have to do is open the lids. Whether it’s the yellow curry sauce, roast-shallot-black pepper vinaigrette or steak and chop garlic salt, these bold combinations turn ordinary, weeknight cooking into gourmet cuisine. The Texas peach barbecue sauce is incredible on anything it touches, and the Thai red curry-coconut sauce is the same sauce used in Abacus’ addictive lobster shooters.
