GIANT Bread Bowls + Clam Chowder Kit - 8 Pack

This product makes 8 GIANT Chowder Bread Bowls, each bowl is large enough to serve 1-2 people.

Ship Splash Cafe’s famous clam chowder straight from Pismo Beach to your dinner table! This chowder is made with only fresh California cream and 3 types of clams, combined with fresh celery, potatoes, and other vegetables. This chowder is rich and creamy, and kissed by the sea. When served in a freshly baked sourdough bread bowl from Splash Cafe’s very own bakery, it’s a California beach classic!

The low-key Splash Cafe first opened its doors just steps from the Pismo Beach Pier in 1989, and since 1991 it’s been run by Joanne Currie and her husband Ross, who turned it into a certified local landmark. Their housemade clam chowder is so good that it consistently takes the top prize at the city’s annual clam festival, and it helped spawn an additional location and artisan bakery in San Luis Obispo. More than 40,000 gallons of clam chowder are served here every year! Whether enjoyed inside a bread bowl or not, this is some of the best clam chowder in America.
