The first time in my life I had this delicious soup was back in 2008 when I was on vacation in San Francisco (California). I remember I went to this little nice restaurant right on the beach in Monterrey and they served me the Clam chowder in a sourdough bread cup…It was just delicious!

Since I don’t know when  I will be in the States next, I have decided to make it myself. I’ve also attempted to make the sourdough but the result wasn’t great so I’m not going to post the recipe now. I’m going to give it an other try…see if it gets better 😀 This means you will have to wait at least an other week ’cause the process for making the sourdough starter is a long and difficult one…

Anyways, enjoy the Clam Chowder for now and let me know if you guys like it.

I served my Clam Chowder in the “sourdough bread” I tried to make (which wasn’t THAT sour though, lol). If you guys don’t want/have the time to make the bread just serve it in a soup bowl and enjoy it warm 🙂
