Did you know?
The origin of the term chowder is obscure, but one possible source is the French word chaudière which was used by French fishermen to cook soups and stews.
The Chowder was originally created by fisherman who would throw portions of the day's catch into a large pot, along with other available foods. Nowadays, it is virtually impossible for seafood lovers to stop in a fishing community and resist the most compelling aroma of creamy chowder.
