Where Does the Name "Cioppino" Come From?  

While walking down Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, you may have smelled or tried cioppino. 

Serving it with sourdough is perfect in San Francisco. 

Cioppino is made using tomatoes and white wine, regardless of the fish.

If the stew is made outside San Francisco, the broth may contain local ingredients.  

This usually indicates clams, crab, shrimp, mussels, or scallops.  

Cioppino's main component is "catch of the day," so it's varied, 

but if it's authentic, it's probably fresh Pacific Ocean fish.
