Cioppino (pronounced chuh-PEE-no) is considered San Franciscos signature dish, and no trip to this West Coast city would be complete without a bowlful of this delicious Cioppino seafood stew.

History of Cioppino: This fish stew first became popular on the docks of San Francisco (now known as Fishermans wharf) in the 1930s. Cioppino is thought to be the result of Italian immigrant fishermen adding something from the days catch to the communal stew kettle on the wharf.

The origin of the word cioppino is something of a mystery, and many historians believe that it is Italian-American for chip in. It is also believed that the name comes from a Genoese fish stew called cioppin.
