CHARLTON — If you ask Chef Dana Morey, nothing warms you up on a chilly autumn day like a piping hot bowl of "chowda."

"Who doesn't like it?" asked the Bay Path Regional Technical Vocational High School culinary instructor. The topic came up because Morey is busy planning the school's 9th annual Chowder Fest, which will take place Sunday, Nov. 20, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Bay Path Café.

According to Morey, this year's festival will rival past years — with more 15 area vocational schools, including Bay Path, and local restaurants dishing out samples of their creamy concoctions, and vying for the prize of "people's choice." In addition to the classic clam chowder, eateries have the option of coming up with their own specialty chowder to showcase at the fest as well.

"In the past we've have corn and crab chowder, cracked pepper, Mexican chowder — it can get very interesting," Morey said.
