Salt & Iron, Here and There Grill win Clam Chowder Cook-Off’s People’s Choice awards

We reported Saturday on judges’ opinions of the best chowder during the second annual Edmonds Clam Chowder Cook-Off at the Edmonds Yacht Club. On Monday, event sponsor the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce announced the People’s Choice awards, as decided by those attending the event. And the winners are:

Best Traditional Clam Chowder – Salt & Iron
Best Cutting Edge Clam Chowder – Here and There Grill

Salt & Iron was also the Best Traditional Clam Chowder choice of judges, although the chamber’s Monday announcement noted that the vote was initially a tie between Salt & Iron and Swedish Edmonds. That tie was broken in another blind tasting with a set of alternate judges, the chamber said.

The five-member judges’ panel chose 190 Sunset the winner of Best Cutting Edge Clam Chowder.

According to the chamber, 800 people attended the second annual Clam Chowder Cook-Off. Proceeds from the event will help the Edmonds Chamber produce the An Edmonds Kind of 4th parade and fireworks celebration.

And for those planning ahead, the third Annual Edmonds Clam Chowder Cook-Off is set for Feb. 24, 2018.

  1. The people have spoken! Congratulations to Here and There. Julie and the crew work very hard and take a lot of pride in pleasing their customers. Some of the best quisine in Edmonds at great prices, hands down.


  2. That’s two years in a row for Julie and her crew winning one of the awards. The Big Orange Truck serves Wonderful Food if you haven’t already tried it! Congratulations to Here and There Grill!!


    1. I just checked with the chamber and they said they ended up with so few children’s choice ballots, they incorporated them into the other people’s choice votes.
