Recipe by quirkycook

I recently visited New Orleans on vacation and my fiance and I took a regional cooking class. The chef made this dish and even though I didn't think I would like it (I'm not a big corn chowder person), I absolutely LOVED this dish and went back for seconds. If it wasn't for the large class, I would have happily offered to lick the pot clean. I can't wait to try this when I get home!
