- chowder:  Chowder, a North American seafood soup, probably takes its name from the pot in which it was originally cooked – French chaudière ‘stew pot’. This came from late Latin caldāria ‘pot’, a descendant of Latin calidārium ‘hot bath’ (which lies behind English cauldron); this in turn was a derivative of the adjective calidus ‘warm’.
=> calorie, cauldron
