Join us at Mollie Stone’s Burlingame on Thursday, June 20, 2013, to meet Chef Sharone Hakman of Master Chef fame!
Sharone Hakman as always been the guy behind the grill, and now he’s the man behind the sauce. His goal? To redefine BBQ and elevate it with real body, developed flavor and sophistication.
In 2010, Sharone earned a spot on the FOX Network’s MasterChef - a reality cooking show which sought to find America’s most promising amateur chef - and stole the show when he crafted a BBQ sauce that judges declared his “secret weapon.”
He tested his creation, feeding BBQ sauce-smothered steak to 500 Marines at Camp Pendleton, and satisfying America’s road warriors with gourmet BBQ burgers during a truck stop challenge. When TV’s toughest food critics and chefs were blown away, Sharone knew it was time to share. Gordon Ramsay called Hak’s sauce the “best BBQ sauce ever made” and Oprah Winfrey recently hailed it as an “updated take on barbecue sauce” with “depth and complexity to burn.”
Mark your calendar to get Sharone’s tips and secrets to elevating your BBQ with his award-winning sauces:

Dry-cured black olives of the Beldi variety are harvested late in the season at their fullest ripeness, developing a dense, rich, fruit flavor and dramatically dark color. They are sundried to perfection, and this dry cure creates the delicate, wrinkled, shiny skin with a meaty texture.
One of the best ways to serve Black Beldi olives is as a component to a grain salad. The deep flavors of the olive pair nicely with the subtlety of grains such as couscous or bulgur wheat. Additional ingredients such as orange segments, slivered almonds and feta cheese make a wonderfully refreshing side dish.

The red peppadew is a sweet piquante pepper cured in a sweet and sour brine. The result is an adventurous combination of sweet, sharp, savory and spicy flavors. Peppadews are available in both mild and hot varieties, both of which have the crisp texture of the familiar hot pepper. However, the flavor profile is entirely different than a hot pepper and the seeds are always removed.
One of the best ways to serve peppadews is as a quick appetizer. Simply leave them whole and stuff them with goat or feta cheese. They are very versatile and will add a punch of flavor to many types of dishes, too:
These unique peppers have not been around for very long. Keep reading to learn how they were discovered!
