Snackshot of the Day: New England Clam Chowder

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a bowl of New England clam chowder. You're probably all like, "Um, what is that? It's not even in a bread bowl, geez." While the Bay Area may have popularized the chowder in a bread bowl carb-attack, let's not forget it's called New England clam chowder for a reason. In its place of origin, the Northeast, the dish is classically served in a non-edible bowl with oyster crackers. Personally, I'd eat clam chowder out of a ceramic bowl, a glass bowl, a bread bowl, or basically anything for that matter.
