This New England style chowder is one of my daughter's favorite meals. Several years ago the recipe won a contest and was featured on a local television program. I was recovering from a surgery at the time so I wasn't able to be in the studio when they demonstrated how to make the chowder. But I had a few minutes of fame anyway. :) The chowder goes great with my Children of the Cornbread (recipe also posted here). I've also served it in a sourdough bowl or simply with cheesy fish crackers.
