It's culinary competition for chefs from throughout Northern California, but more fun than formal as participants have cooked while dressed as scuba divers, mermaids and even as a "Clam Fairy."
The competition features two divisions: Individual and Professional. Plaques are awarded in each division for Best Clam Chowder in both Boston and Manhattan categories, as well as the People's Choice and Most Original Team.
Pubic is invited to the 36th annual event. No charge for admission, but Tasting Kits ($9) allow sampling of five different chowders.
