  1. Chowder. We don’t have that in the UK. It’s an American term. Conjures up thoughts of fish stew (yuk). Or corn chowder (yuk). You must think we eat some pretty strange stuff though. Yorkshire puddings? Toad in the hole? Shepherds Pie? Now we’re talking!

    1. Even here in the States chowder isn’t one thing – it varies from region to region, state to state, and even family to family.

      We have Shepherds Pie, too – I think it’s delicious. Then again, I haven’t met much food I haven’t liked (Brussels sprouts, beets, and shrimp not withstanding).
