National Clam Chowder Day

-blog created on February 23, 2015



One of America's greatest culinary traditions has its own nationally recognized holiday coming up on February 25th, better known as National Clam Chowder Day! Clam Chowder is an exceptionally popular seafood soup that actually originated hundreds of years ago.  History shows references of the popular dish originating from the Northeastern Native Americans and Europeans, where the soup was originally made with any type of fish from the day's seafood catch. The long lasting popularity of the delicious seafood soup has led to yearly celebration in its name - National Clam Chowder Day. Each year seafood lovers around the country celebrate in their own unique ways; ranging from Chowder Cookoff's to feeding the homeless, or to just enjoying a warm cup of chowder on a cold winters' day.  Whether you're a fan of New England style Clam Chowder, Manhattan style or Rhode Island style, be sure to enjoy a bowl of America's favorite soup this holiday.
