Portland chef named America's hottest chef

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland-area food scene holds many honors, and now it has another: home of America's hottest chef.

Chef Pascal Sauton, already selected Portland's hottest chef by Eater.com, is now the hottest chef in America, according to the foodie website.

The chef of Milwaukie Kitchen and Wine decided to put his own spin on the definition of "hot," exposing his belly and proudly carrying a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Some of his friends submitted the photo to Eater's local site in Portland.

Before he knew it, Sauton had beat the competition in Portland and is now in the running for America's Hottest Chef.

"I'm up against three other chefs - two very beautiful ladies, a very handsome guy and me, holding my PBR," he said Tuesday, before the voting had closed. "And guess what? I'm leading by a little bit."

Wednesday was the final day to vote at Eater.

Sauton said he would serve up some free food - PBR, cheese soup and hot dogs - if he won. Stay tuned.
