Citizens, New England Clam Chowder is a classic, but far too often it resembles a mucilage of flour and overcooked seafood.
My version honors the source with top-quality ingredients as well as fresh herbs – it was begrudgingly acknowledged by an 85-year old dyed-in-the-wool New Englander as the best she had ever tasted.
The fact that a New Yorker made it was a source of great consternation to her. She was however consoled knowing I went to college in Massachusetts. 😉
