Red Dog Artisan Foods

Paul Van Gelder is a Californian with more than a passing knowledge of chilli, herbs and spices. He’s a complete encyclopaedia. He has brought his decades of experience in American barbecue and savoury seasonings to his wife Barbara’s home town of Kilkeel. It is the HQ of Red Dog Artisan Foods and it is where they make their magical sauces, rubs and salts..

It is using tricks like soaking chillies in coffee the Texan way, and knowing where to get the best seaweed for their salts that have led to a clutch of Great Taste and Blas na hEireann Awards. If you don’t like chilli, worry not. The Californian sauce has none at all. We just adore it on chicken, pork, beef….

The Sour Cherry jelly is superb as a cheesecake topping. Who knew? Work your away around as much of their range as possible and discover worlds of new flavours.
