SEASIDE — Hundreds swarmed to the Seaside Civic and Convention center on Election Day – was it because the governor was going to appear?

An Election Day celebration to beat all others?

Not even close.

It was the best chefs in the county showing off their culinary skills while competing in the seventh annual Iron Chef Goes Coastal event.

Sponsored by United Way of Clatsop County, the event includes a silent and live auction and a one-hour competition between chefs to plate a meal. Each team prepares three courses, including one soup or salad, one appetizer and one entrée, times six – for the judges and one lucky person who wins the live auction for that plate. Each dish must include the secret ingredient: carrots.

Astoria Coffeehouse & Bistro’s Sean Whittaker won the Iron Chef honor this year.

A people’s Choice Competition featured area restaurants vying for votes with appetizers. It was won by Astoria’s Drina Daisy.

And then there was the Best Dessert of Clatsop County, won by Baked Alaska.

All proceeds benefit UWCC, which financially assist 13 local nonprofit agencies.
