BRIDGEPORT, CT (WFSB) – Wednesday is National Clam Chowder Day.

The day celebrates the popular soup, which is often made from claims, onion and potato.

Recipes, however, vary from country to country.

A recent “Chowdafest” festival in Bridgeport, which organizers said determines New England’s best chowder, claimed Donovan’s in South Norwalk has the best. In fact, the eatery won top honors multiple years in a row.

The competition, typically held on October, had O’Neill’s and Spark’s Sports Grill, also both in Norwalk, rounding out the top three.
