There are three main types of chowder: cream-based New England, tomato-based Manhattan, and clear broth-based Rhode Island. Which do you pledge allegiance to? I'm partial to the New England variety, since I grew up in Connecticut, which is why I was drawn to this recipe.
But this New England-style "chowda" is surprisingly based off a famous recipe from a restaurant in Utah.
Yup, this chowder comes straight from Market Street Grill in Salt Lake City. The ingredients are simple — potatoes, celery, chopped clams, half-and half — but the finished product is a rich, flavorful masterpiece.
This hearty bowl of soup makes a super-filling dinner — especially if you top it with crushed Saltines and serve with crusty bread on the side!
