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.
