Alaska Airlines Blog

Update: 10 a.m. local time Friday in Seattle

A 53-pound king salmon was the catch of the day for three top chefs who competed for the best salmon recipe in this year’s sixth annual Copper Chef Cook-off.

Congratulations to this year’s winner Ethan Stowell of Staple & Fancy and Tavolata.

Stowell competed against defending champion John Howie of Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar and Eric Tanaka of TanakaSan.

The three culinary craftsmen will have 30 minutes to prepare and serve the freshly caught salmon to a panel of four judges including Seattle Seahawks’ first and legendary quarterback Jim Zorn; Seattle Mariners Hall of Famer Jay Buhner; Seattle Storm President and General Manager Alisha Valavanis; and Alaska Air Cargo’s Managing Director Betsy Bacon.

My friend Lisa always challenges me to think outside the standard family session portrait box … so what did she come up with this year? A November trip to the beach – complete with campfire and s’mores! What could possibly go wrong?

As it turned out, nothing! We got lucky with a 60 degree day, sunshine, and an empty beach. The kids had a blast and so did I.

Enjoy the images!

Did I mention this family is adorable?
