Chowder Food Quotes

“Mrs. Murphy's chowder was, of course, inedible, but then I was not here for Mrs. Murphy's chowder. I was here for Miss Maddie McParland.”
Sherlock Holmes in 'The Song At Twilight' (2009) by Micheal Breathnach (Michael Walsh)

“Corn chowder. That's an interesting choice. You do know that cellulite is one of the main ingredients in corn chowder.”
Stanley Tucci as Nigel in the movie 'The Devil Wears Prada' (2006)

“The chowder, as I said, was execrable, an eldritch admixture of corn water -- no doubt cheap liquor had been added to it as well -- and some sort of meat stock dredged up from the bowels of the nearby slaughterhouses.... All it wanted was a pair of overalls to make the concoction complete.”
Sherlock Holmes in 'The Song At Twilight' (2009) by Micheal Breathnach (Michael Walsh)

“The chowder....was execrable, an eldritch admixture of corn, water - no doubt cheap liquor had been added to it as well - and some sort of meat stock dredged up from the bowels of the nearby slaughterhouses, whose stench permeates the insalubrious atmosphere of this most wretched of American cities.”
Sherlock Holmes in 'The Song At Twilight'
by Michael Breathnach (2009)


“Fishiest of all places was the Try Pots, which well deserved its name; for the pots there were always boiling chowders. Chowder for breakfast, and chowder for dinner, and chowder for supper, till you began to look for fish-bones coming through your clothes.”
Herman Melville, ‘Moby Dick’ (1851)

“Alas, what crimes have been committed in the name of chowder!”
Louis P. De Gouy, ‘The Soup Book’ (1949)

"Chowder breathes reassurance. It steams consolation."
Clementine Paddleford

“But when that smoking chowder came in, the mystery was delightfully explained. Oh! sweet friends, hearken to me. It was made of small juicy clams, scarcely bigger than hazel nuts, mixed with pounded ship biscuits and salted pork cut up into little flakes! the whole enriched with butter, and plentifully seasoned with pepper and salt.....we dispatched it with great expedition.”
Ishmael in Herman Melville's 'Moby Dick'

“Four tablespoonfuls of onions, fried with pork.  One quart of boiled potatoes, well mashed.  One and a half pounds sea-biscuit, broken.  One teaspoonful of thyme, mixed with one of summer savory.  Half-bottle of mushroom catsup.  One bottle of port or claret.  Half of a nutmeg, grated.  A few cloves, mace, and allspice.  Six pounds of fish, sea-bass or cod, cut in slices.  Twenty five oysters, a little black pepper, and a few slices of lemon.  The whole put in a pot, covered with an inch of water, boiled for an hour, and gently stirred.”
Daniel Webster's Chowder Recipe, 'The Cook' (1885)

“Dainty, chintz-draped tea rooms, charity bazaars, church suppers, summer hotels, canning factories --  all have shamelessly travestied one of America's noblest institutions; yet while clams and onions last, the chowder shall not die, neither shall it sink into the limbo of denatured emasculated forgotten things.”
Louis P. De Gouy, ‘The Soup Book’ (1949)
