A Devon invention, Chowder traditionally translates to fish seller, but the term gradually came to mean a rich soup, made with fish and cream over the next hundred years or so. Immigrants to New England developed this delicious, rich dinner soup, and elevated it into the wonderful dish it is today. Very popular the world over, it’s a great dish for a celebration or for anyone wanting to comfort themselves with a delicious treat.
Originally made with Clams, the soup now also gets made with different varieties of shellfish and cream, and vegetables like potatoes to thicken it. Crumbed biscuits or crackers are also stirred in at the end sometimes too. There’s also a version from Bermuda, that has tomatoes and onions! However, to simplify your choice, here’s 20 of the best clam chowder recipes to choose from.
