Tom Douglas

H
ow to Enjoy Food:
Experiences with his grandmother helped shape Tom’s love affair with food…and food at the heart of enjoying life.

“My Grandma Fogarty taught me how to sip Jack Daniels and chug Pabst Blue Ribbon,” Douglas says, with a grin. She taught me how to dine. Her husband was an exec for the railroads, in the 30s and 40s, when some of the best food was in the dining car. She would cook all day in her house dress and disappear at 5pm into her bedroom. She’d come out in a nice dress, have a high ball, and start the process of dinner. I always loved that about grandma Fogarty. Dinner was not something to be missed and rushed through. It was an event, an experience.”

What Needs To Be Good…For A Good Meal:
“The sex afterwards. Or before. Or during. Just kidding.” Douglas pauses. “Not really. Has to be the music. I try to listen to something that goes with my meal. In some ways it puts me in the mood to do something. I like picking music to match the food. Great vegetables. I love steak and protein. But if it doesn’t match up with the vegetable. Whatever it is, I love the fresh vegetable.”

Good Food, Like Style, Doesn’t Require Tons of Effort or Time
“My pet peeve about cooking is that people always say they don’t have time to cook. Yet millions of people watch American Idol for an hour and do nothing on the couch. I think every kitchen should have a television. People should cook while watching TV.”
 
If you could only shop at one store, which would it be?
PIKE PLACE MARKET IN SEATTLE
Besides the fact that you can cook, would you do well if you were a contestant on Top Chef? Why?
NO I WOULDN’T DO WELL. I WOULD WANT TO KICK TOM COLLICHIO’S ASS. HE’S NOT AN ASS IN REAL LIFE, BUT HE GETS PAID TO BE “ASS”. AND, I WOULD WANT BED PADMA LAKSHMI. I’D RATHER BE THE HOST.
If you had to describe your personal FOOD style in one word, what would it be?
LOVE. I SAY THAT IN SEVERAL WAYS. I THINK FOOD IS VERY SEXY. THE BEST PLACE FOR ME TO HAVE A DATE WITH MY WIFE IS OVER DINNER – MORE THAN A MOVIE OR ART MUSEUM. WATCHING SOMEONE EAT WITH GUSTO IS SEXY. I HATE WHEN PEOPLE PICK AT FOOD. CERTAIN FOOD LENDS THEMSELVES TO ENJOYMENT IN A SENSUAL WAY…MU SHU PORK OR ROAST DUCK…WHEN YOU EAT WITH YOUR FINGERS. IT’S A PERFECT MEDIUM FOR CHATTING, WHETHER IT’S POLITICS OR FAMILY AFFAIRS. I JUST LOVE IT. I LOVE RESTAURANTS. IT’S HOW I LIVE. I EAT IN ONE OF MINE – AND SOMEONE ELSE’S EVERY DAY.
When you travel, what kinds of things do you shop for?
I SHOP FOR MOSTLY FOR ME. FOR CHINA OR PLATTERS. I COLLECT SERVICE PLATTERS FROM WHATEVER DESTINATION I GO TO. I TRY TO BRING A MEMORY PLATTER BACK…SOMETHING TO REMIND ME OF THE TRIP. MY WIFE BUYS SILVER THAT’S ENGRAVED WITH SOMEONE ELSE’S INITIALS. WE GO TO A SILVER SHOP IN PARIS.
Who cleans up after a meal?
ME. I’M THE DISH GUY. JACKIE DOES THE LAUNDRY. I DO THE DISHES.
