The 2011 ChowderFest at the Custom House Maritime Museum
from Noon to 3:00 pm
The origin of the dish we fondly know as "chowder" is said to hail from fishing villages along the coast of France from Bordeaux to Brittany. Though there are also early European references made in the Cornwall region of Southwestern England located just across the English Channel.
But the fact is, most maritime regions around the globe exhibit ocean fare bearing a remarkable likeness to what we call "chowder". And as any New Englander can attest, the heritage of this remarkably varied and deliciously satisfying dish runs as deep in these parts as the sea providing its inspiration.
That's reason enough to join us on the lawn behind the Custom House Maritime Museum for the third annual ChowderFest on October 8th from 12:00 to 3:00 pm. Come and sample an array of outstanding chowders from many of this area's finest restaurants -- all while supporting the museum! Admission is just $5.00 per person.
Then be sure to cast your vote to determine the winner of this year's -- BEST CHOWDER!
