    Ernani's Note:

    This is by far the best Clam Chowder I have ever had! It is a very famous receipt that has wowed guests and diners at The Drake Hotel for many, many years!!! I sometimes use vegetable stock as opposed to fish.....

      I cut this recipe in half. It was good but there was just something missing. The bay leaf was interesting, I love the taste of bay leafs. The wine of course is a must. I think perhaps some crumbled bacon and more cream and less clam broth would be better for me. Glad I tried it though and hope more people will give it a try. Made for Pick a Chef.
