Tom Douglas, a Delaware native, grew up on blue crabs steamed with loads of Old Bay spice, but he later moved to Seattle, where Dungeness is king. For the last twenty years, Tom's Dungeness crab cakes have been one of the top-selling dishes in his popular restaurants. Along with his wife and business partner, Jackie Cross, Tom owns four of Seattle's most exciting restaurants: Dahlia Lounge, Etta's, Palace Kitchen, and Lola, as well as Dahlia Bakery and a catering business, Tom Douglas Catering and Events. Tom is the author of Tom Douglas' Seattle Kitchen, which won a James Beard Award, and Tom's Big Dinners. Tom and Jackie live in Seattle, Washington, with their daughter, Loretta.
