Corn Chowder

Corn chowder is a thick, cream-based soup similar to New England clam chowder, but with clams swapped out for sweet corn. We love adding bacon, potatoes and shrimp to classic corn chowder; it's especially tasty garnished with a small amount of red-pepper cream or lots of garlic croutons. Perfect for cold winter nights, it's also delicious in the late-summer months, when corn is particularly fresh and in season.
