he Heceta Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast is one of the most popular places to visit and enjoy an extraordinary seven-

course breakfast. Located in Yachats, Oregon it is on the west side of 1,000-foot-high Heceta Head, 205 feet above the ocean. The location is famous for the 1894 Heceta Head Lighthouse and is one of the icons of Oregon. It is the most-photographed lighthouse on the West Coast. Mike and Carol Korgan, both certified executive chefs, came to Heceta Head to revitalize the Keepers House and make it a welcoming home. The seven-course breakfast was created with this ideal in mind. A blend of inspired food and good conversation is a recipe for true Victorian living.

The chefs have brought delightful, delicious Oregon and Northwest flavors to life. The Inn Manager and Event Coordinator Misty Anderson says, "Guests are amazed at how much there is, all the pastries, cakes and breads, are made in house. The Chefs are always creating new food ideas for the meals."

The sweet breads such as the orange bread is made with rich orange blossom flavor and is a favorite amongst the guests. There are other sweet breads such as; Sweet Basil bread, Oregon Hazelnut Praline, Triple Gingerbread, and there are plenty more where they came from.

Guests ask for the recipes so publishing a cookbook was a natural progression. There are individual recipes and a story behind each one. Some seven course meals offer seafood, meat,

and sweet dessert breads, the selections are endless. The Chefs are always changing up the menu and offering new and delightful breakfast items. The reputation of the Heceta Lighthouse Cookbook and the seven course meals has gained quite a following including staying at the bed and breakfast, in fact it is so popular there is a waiting list for overnight stays. The next best thing is to buy the Heceta Lighthouse Cookbook to try and made the recipes at home. The cookbook includes dozens of stories about the lighthouse and inn. The lobster crepe and cheese dish with butter sauce for the lobster is a must have. A little bit of west coast taste even if you can’t make the trip. Sounds like a great compromise, until you can make it in person!
