Love soup. In fact, my last meal could very easily be a big bowl of soup, crusty bread and some fragrant, soft cheese. I'd be willing to go out on that.

This is food porn to me -- it's labeled as Ecuadorian Corn Chowder and I started thinking about what is a chowder vs soup vs bisque. Of course there are hundreds of explanations, many contradictory, but it came down to a chowder is chunky and a bisque is smooth. A bisque is typically pureed shellfish or pureed vegetables. Some sources claim it's the cream that makes it a chowder as opposed to soup, but then the contradiction comes in about cream of x soup -- why isn't that chowder?

Anyway, enjoy your soup, your chowder, your bisque -- it's perfect weather for all of it.

Don't know why, but I think of a chowder as having potatoes in it

I don't care what it's called, I want a bowl of that!

Where did you have that delicious looking soup? Are you becoming domesticated?
