As far as chowders go, I would have to rate this "average". I followed the directions, but it turned out rather watery, and lacking in flavor. Not exceedingly good or bad.

Good, hearty. Great with crusty bread. I doubled the poultry seasoning & cut the amount of cheese back just a bit. My potatoes got sort of mushy ... DH & I decided this would be better with everything in it BUT the potatoes (odd, b/c we love potatoes usually). I used skim milk with no problem & a chardonnay for the wine, and it came together pretty quickly for a good weeknight meal.

Yumm!! I've got this still going on the stove as I write this. I made it for my mom, as a nice winter treat, but now I'm not sure I want to share. What a velvety, creamy soup! I used some condensed milk, since I only keep skim in the fridge, and used a scanty measure of sherry, instead of white wine because I didn't have any white wine. Turned out great...I'm really pleased.
