A Beautiful (and TASTY!) ChowdaFest!

Beautiful day, beautiful attendees, incomparable tastings! In addition to all the regulars, we had unusual “creative” chowders, chicken marsalas, minestrone soup from Osteria Romana–even a Creole dish from Simply Delicious (it won Best Bisque).

And chowda! Lots and lots of chowda, from local faves, as well as from vendors from Maine to Seattle(!)

We held FOSI’s drawing for the stuffed animals, the Larry Silver poster and the CT State Park Pass at 3PM at our table. Within a week, all the winners had picked up their prizes, and they (and their kids) are pretty happy! As you can see from Hanna’s face (she named him “Oreo”).
