Clam Chowder

July 20, 2017

Clam chowder is an American classic. You will find it on the menu at any American restaurant. And if it’s not written on the menu, you can safely assume that it will appear by default at the soup and salad bar. This version is a New England clam chowder, which distinguishes it from other chowders based on tomatoes. It was also our mother’s favourite – perhaps a memory of her upbringing in Rhode Island, where given the chowder’s official name, it must have been a staple.
