Re: We Did Chili...how Bout Chowdah


The best chowder I've ever had was salmon chowder a couple of years ago in Washington state, just across the bridge from cascade locks, Oregon. Had never even heard of salmon chowder before then.

Re: We Did Chili...how Bout Chowdah


I have a brother in Warwick that's in charge of all of that. He'd make the chowder, crab cakes, lobster, clambakes. Once a year he would bring it all with him to Ohio.

I like oatmeal in other things...cookies (of course), granola, etc. My Mom used to make "date squares" ....man, were they delicious. Lots of oats, dates, baked in the oven. Glass of milk or cup of coffee and it was Heaven.
Hot oatmeal? No thanks. I've tried too like, it just don't.

Good rule to live by unless you ever want to taste it again wthout having to go to washington.

So was it a cream base with salmon? Smoked salmon? Any potato or corn or .....

I remember Jaws commenting when i was making a shrimp dish with a cream base...No cream sauce in Texas?

Re: We Did Chili...how Bout Chowdah


dom-mas -

Regarding Red River, I don't think to many people south of the border have heard of it and we are in the U.S., but south of close to it Toronto by latitude. Must have something to do with the Red River of the north (one of the few rivers that flow south to north).

It is a big part of my winter breakfast favorites. My wife refers to it as "bird seed", but she can easily find it in stores here. I don't like it cooked to death and want a little texture.

Yes, it was a cream sauce and had potato. Don't remember any corn.

Cream sauce in Texas? Only if cream gravy counts.

Re: We Did Chili...how Bout Chowdah


Oh man. I grew up in cape code, so needless to say. I've eaten my share of chowdah. My grandmother just gave me her recipe for clam chowder. I'm not sure I'm allowed to share it though. (I know i still haven't posted my chili recipe yet, that just laziness though).

My girlfriend got some awesome salmon chowder when we were visiting the west coast this year. I think it was on San Juan island in Washington.

It's INCREDIBLE.
Its one of the best ive had for sure. Outback has a very good one also, surprisingly.

My wife makes a kielbasa chowder a couple times a winter. Good stuff but it can get salty.

Re: We Did Chili...how Bout Chowdah


We need a "Stew" thread. Or, we combine the Chili, Chowdah and Stew and call it the "Pot" thread.

Maybe Cooking Pot thread might be more descriptive and save some contentious discussions.
