The Polar Seltzer Great Chowder Cookoff

Hello everyone. I was just approached by Rich Travis, the Senior Events Manager of The Polar Seltzer Great Chowder Cookoff in Newport, Rhode Island. This, my friends, is the World Championship of Chowder Cookoffs. Last years winner, FROM A SOUTHERN STATE NO LESS, is now selling their championship chowder worldwide. I would love to see a Maine restaurant enter and win.

If this interests you, please contact me and we can chat about what it would take to amp up your chowder to compete in the big leagues. Here is a little tidbit of info for you. Hope to hear from a restaurant or institution soon, they are now accepting applications to enter, so let me help you folks. It would be great publicity and I will help you every step of the way, including attending with you.

Featured on the Food Network and Travel Channel, the legendary Polar Seltzer Great Chowder Cook-Off officially kicks off summer in Newport on Saturday, June 1, 2013. The original and longest running chowder championship draws competitors and crowds from across the country. Attendees enjoy endless samples of traditional and exotic creations from dozens of restaurants and then vote for the best in three categories: Clam, Seafood and Creative. The winners walk away with overflowing prize pots and bragging rights for the year. Live entertainment, food and bar options, kids’ activities sweeten the deal for all festival-goers.
