Clam Chowder // Seafare Pacific // Coos Bay, OR
Our cars are swaddling wombs, familiar and safe, airtight, sound-proof, stocked with the comforts of home. But when that rubber-sealed door silently slams shut, we travelers must leave home behind and live local. Or in our case, eat that way. When in Rome, artichokes and pecorino. When in Oregon, clams. But what if hunger hits before we hit the brakes? This coastal chowder is made to move: premium pouch-packed fish, sustainably wild caught from Oregon’s fertile fishing grounds, mixed up with cream, white wine, and spices, and ready to eat with zap in a rest-area microwave or quick boil on camp stove. Have car, will travel; have chowder, will travel well.
