    Matt Smith's Note:

    This makes a great dinner, and reheats very well. My wife and I eat this for several days after we make it and we are still sad when it runs out.

      Yes - this is a fabulous soup, and I was thrilled to find it already uploaded. I first came across this recipe in The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. Best corn chowder ever.

      Very much enjoyed by all, I felt that maybe there was a bit too much corn, but my daughter thought that was the best bit :D Husband had seconds, so obviously really enjoyed it!I Halved the recipe and still had plenty. I didn't add extra salt, and was sparing with the stock cubes. Served with garlic/sweet chilli bread, all in all a very good dinner, thank you!

      I halved the ingredients, and followed everything stated, except I omitted ollive oil and butter. The bacon fat smells very good. This chowder is yellowish because of the ground turmeric. If you would rather have the traditional white one, feel free to omit it. I used frozen white corn that tends to be sweeter. Also added some salmon in it. Great soup.
