PORT ANGELES — The Oasis Bar and Grill of Sequim was a double winner at the first Captain Joseph House Benefit Chowder Cook-Off held at the recent Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival.

Celebrity chef, author and chowder contest judge Graham Kerr selected Oasis' entry for the Grand Champion award, and Oasis came out on top in voting for the People's Choice award.

Oasis owners Dale and Janice Dunning said they were thrilled with the victory.

“Our customers are always telling us that we have the best chowder they have ever tasted, and this just confirms it,” said Janice Dunning.

“And to have a legend like Graham Kerr judge and pick our chowder is just amazing.

“The real credit goes to our head chef Brandon Mayo. He is an outstanding talent.”

The Captain Joseph House was founded by Betsy Reed Schultz in honor of her son, Capt. Joseph William Schultz, and its purpose is to provide a respite to heal and rebuild military families who have lost a loved one and made the ultimate sacrifice.

“We wanted to create a fun and ongoing fundraising event that can be a permanent part of the Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival,” Schultz said.

“We will have to step it up a notch next year,” said Dale Dunning.

The award-winning chowder is available every Friday at The Oasis Bar and Grill, 301 E. Washington St. in Sequim.
