On this day in 1851, Herman Melville's Moby-Dick was published in the US.
Many of us haven't read this epic in full (or even in part), so we would easily be forgiven for not knowing that there are two prominent food passages in it.
But Valerie Stivers is here to catch us all up.
Head to The Paris Review to read about the whale- and chowder-eating scenes in Moby-Dick and, if you're so inclined, to check out her recipe for clam chowder (adapted from Voracious by Cara Nicoletti).
