Liquid Kitchen on the Road
The Heathman Restaurant & Bar!
In the early 90’s I wrote the Northwest Table Cookbook and Chef Greg Higgins penned the Oregon chapter. He was the chef at the Heathman Hotel way back when and the hotel became my home base for shooting the Oregon companion videos for PBS. Fast forward about 12 years – we did a new cocktail menu and I was thrilled to be asked to come back and do new cocktails to go with Chef Michael Stanton’s NW local-French inspired menu. It was so fun to create cocktails to compliment his menu and cooking style.
Liquid Kitchen’s Keith Waldbauer and I recently headed to Portland to shake up our new cocktails at a press party featuring the new menu. To go with the Heathman’s famed High Tea service, we created the Tea Court Lounge Punch with Fonté Earl Grey Tea Spiced Syrup, rum, cognac, and fresh juices – topped with and Angostura Foam. Another party favorite was the Vineyard Margarita.
