Clam chowder is a type of fish stew made with vegetables. Its origins date back to the indigenous people of America in the mid-1800’s. Today, there are dozens of versions of clam chowder that vary from region to region.

Did you know Herman Melville wrote an ode to chowder? In “Moby Dick,” Herman Melville wrote, “oh, sweet friends! hearken to me. It was made of small juicy clams, scarcely bigger than hazelnuts, mixed with pounded ship biscuit, and salted pork cut up into little flakes; the whole enriched with butter, and plentifully seasoned with pepper and salt.”
