Clam Chowder Quotes


“(Clam Chowder) is rude, rugged, a food of body and substance -- like Irish stew, Scottish haggis, English steak and kidney pie -- a worthy ration for the men and women of a pioneer race and for their offspring.”

Louis P. De Gouy, The Soup Book (1949)

 

“Clam chowder is one of those subjects, like politics or religion, that can never be discussed lightly.  Bring it up even incidentally, and all the innumerable factions of the clam bake regions raise their heads and begin to yammer.”

Louis P. De Gouy, The Soup Book (1949)

 

"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."

Herman Melville - Ishmael in 'Moby Dick' (1851)

 

“Chowder breathes reassurance. It steams consolation.”

Clementine Paddleford
