    Bonnie G #2's Note:

    I know there are a lot of clam chowder recipes posted, but found this one in a William Sonoma magazine and it looks so good with the addition of pancetta. Haven't made it yet, but plan to soon and want it here for safe keeping.

      Mixed reviews here...I gave it a 5 and hubby rated it a 3...he didn't care for the brown color...and the taste of ham...(pancetta)...he said he preferred bacon and more milk...(half an half or cream)...but he did eat his bowl full of the chowder...=)

      Really good bowl of chowder! First time for me using pancetta in chowder, and it is a really nice change from bacon. Liked the pinch of cayenne also! Will be making this version again! Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
