2019 FEATURED CHEFS

Since its establishment in 2016, the goal of Saltadena has and always will be to create beautiful food that tastes absolutely delicious. For me, cakes represent an intersection between two things I love most in life—food and art. Opening Saltadena has allowed me to tap into my creative side and offer a more varied experience in taste, texture and aesthetics. While each client has different needs, I offer a very modern and clean aesthetic that can easily be applied to any occasion and leave a lasting, timeless impression on you and your guests.

When it comes to ingredients, we believe the label should be short and sweet. At ACME Ice Cream, that’s an easy ask. We source our cream locally from happy neighborhood cows and juicy berries grown within arm’s reach of our verdant hometown in Whatcom County. Exotic ingredients like our coffee, chocolate, and vanilla come from fair trade, single-origin, and premium growing locations around the world. Sweetened naturally with cane sugar and never pumped up with air, ACME Ice Cream is pure, unadulterated goodness. It all adds up to the thickest, richest experience possible proving once again that less really is more – in life and ice cream!

The philosophy of the bakery is to enhance both the natural products and the flavor of the various grains. The baked goods are created from Northwest apples, potatoes, cranberries and hazelnuts, as well as wheat, rye, barley and buckwheat flour. Macrina Casera, the house bread, was developed to be eaten at any meal, complementing all foods.

The bakers at Macrina love bread and that shows in the quality. This is bread that celebrates the tradition of breaking bread with family and friends.

Gracia is the Spanish translation for the word grace. Gerl's vision for Gracia is founded on his deep admiration and reverence for Mexican culture and cuisine.  A palate cultivated by his many years of travels across Mexico and his tenure in Seattle and New York kitchens, Gerl strives to create dishes reflective of his personal experiences.  Sourcing pure and honest ingredients, he preserves and honors the history and techniques of traditional Mexican cuisine.  Gerl imports non-GMO, heirloom corn varieties from Oaxaca, Mexico, then nixtamalizes the kernels in house; the result, fresh masa.  Masa, the foundation and heart of his menu, produces distinctly nuanced, earthy flavors that are reflective of season, variety, geography and craft.

The Best Central Texas Barbecue in Seattle!

Jack’s BBQ is based on the BBQ style started in butcher shops in Central Texas in the late 1800’s. Beef and pork with a simple salt and pepper rub, smoked low and slow over hardwoods (post oak, mesquite, hickory), and served on butcher paper.  Sauce is optional (sometimes not even served in Central Texas), along with pickles and white bread.
