For over 30 years the annual Chowder Cook-Off with a Twist has been showcasing some of Brevard’s most delicious clam chowder and other tasty treats. Every year, the Space Coast’s best chefs and restaurants come out to compete for the “Best Chowder” and “Best Twist.”
The 31st Annual Chowder Cook-Off with a Twist will take place in Port Canaveral’s Cruise Terminal 1, on Thursday, Feb. 4, starting at 6 p.m.
In addition to competing for the best clam chowder, contestants can compete for best dessert and best appetizers, which are the “twist.” Past “twist” winners have been Grills for their Ahi Poke and Florida Key Lime Pie Company for their Key Lime Pie.
Besides the wide array of delicious chowders, appetizers and desserts presented at this cook-off, there will also be live music, a silent auction, raffles, drinks and more.
More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the 31st Annual Chowder Cook-Off with a Twist. Tickets are now on sale for a discounted price of $20 if you buy them in advance and $30 at the door. VIP tickets can be purchased for $40 in advance and $50 at the door.
