National New England Clam Chowder Day

Jan 21, 2020 12 am - Jan 21, 2020 11 pm | Leo O' Donovan Hall | Fresh Food Company

It’s New England Clam Chowder Day! Chowders originated in fishing villages on the coast of France in the 16th century. Most recipes called for salt pork and biscuits, which were both part of a standard sailor’s ration. Today, we’ve substituted the biscuits (also known as hardtack) for salty crackers! There are many different varieties of clam chowder including New England, Manhattan, Rhode Island, Down East, and Outer Banks. New England clam chowder is made with milk or cream, and the use of tomatoes is frowned upon. In fact, in 1939 the state of Maine made it illegal to put tomatoes in clam chowder! Celebrate this great culinary tradition and enjoy a bowl of delicious chowder in honor of New England Clam Chowder Day!
