Vegetable chowder is a hearty and warming dish. Chowder is basically a type of creamy, rich soup. If you are making this as a starter for a dinner party, you can impress your guests by serving the chowder in a bread bowl. Edible bread ‘trenchers’ have been a part of western cuisine since medieval times. These were hollowed out bread loaves that were used to serve many kinds of foods including soups, stews and porridge.
Bread bowls are very simple to make and look wonderful. For serving individual vegetable chowder portions, pick larger bread rolls that will fit a generous serving when hollowed out. Choose rolls with a firm crust, as soft rolls will not offer the structure you need to hold liquids. You could make your own bread rolls from scratch, or buy some fresh rolls from your local bakery.Image Source: food-blogger.org
