PEI-Style Smoky Clam Chowder
Finnan haddie, or cold-smoked cured haddock, gives this brothy chowder a deep, clean, smoky foundation that highlights sweet clams without overwhelming them. Using a mixture of lightly mashed potatoes and hald-and-half to thicken and enrich the soup gives it a silky, but not heavy, texture.

Medium-bodied, bright Oregon Pinot Gris.
