Whole baby clams!
That looks exceptional.
Please don't be insulted when I return the bowl back with all of the celery lining the bottom of the bowl.  Everything else will be gone!

From the pics it does appear that way, but it's not as thick as it appears, it definitely got body though!

What are you talking about? Tomatoes? New England Clam Chowder is Cream, Long Island Clam Chowder, tomatoes.

Hey Bill, I always had Manhattan clam chowder in Connecticut, When I came to Washington State they only had white............For a real clam broth taste there is nothing like Manhattan clam chowder.................

Chewy,have you considered writing a cookbook? I would be glad to partner with you on it. I have a collection of soup recipes I developed over the years, most from leftovers. Never have done anything with them but everyone loves all of them.
By the way, we lived in Frederick for four years. Used to pass your place to get to York. Now I am constantly kicking myself for not stopping in. Never realized the food would be so great, as it obviously is. Why don't you open a branch down here?

Chef,wish you had stopped in, maybe you could be the branch owner in Fla. now!
As far as a cookbook I never really thought about it, I do love dreaming up soups and dishes I'ne never seen anywhere but I know would taste great, my shortcoming though is how to explain a personal portion recipe for a cookbook. Thanks for the kind words!

Onions  carrots, green pepper, liquified, chopped celery, chicken broth, idaho potato, bacon, whole clams, whole cream or 1/2 & 1/2, creme sherry, clam juice, thyme, pepper, lobster base,  simmer all together, adjust as necessary till the potatoes are a go, don't be shy with the amount of clams.

Mr Chewy---how can you afford to supply Harry Winston spoons ? 
But with a chow-dar (please use Maine accent when talking about chow-dars) that thick and
Good-Lookin' a Winston Spoon would be appropriate.  By the way Harry was the Diamond King----my old buddy Paul Revere made the silverware. 
 
Sign me up for the cook book---send a autographed copy so that it will escalate in value.  I will leave it to my kids in my will. 
 
"Le Soup de Chewy" hits NYTimes best seller list for 14th consecutive week.   Bon Appetit !!!!!!!!!!!!! RIP Julia.

Ed, got it at an Asian market in Frederick Md., it's really good on the pulled pork, but most folks are afraid to try it, they don't know what they are missing!

Oliver Twist asked for MORE and got in big trouble.
 
Harry Winston and I were sittiing having a bowl of New England Clam Chow-dar and watching a few young chicks skating at Rockefeller Center, when he suddenly turned to me and said---oh damn, I forgot what Harry said. I am sure it was a gem.

The Ancient One has agreed to distribute the book, much to my relief, you will need to ask him how he plans to do it.

When I ran a Book in Brooklyn----oh you mean your World Famous Cookbook----The moment the proofs reach my desk Chewy I will get the ads rolling.  Amazon has contacted me and so have the folks at Madd Comics.  I will hold out for the best deal, of course.
Hugh Hefner will excerpt in 12 editions if you allow a few pics and a centerfold of Miss Lobster Bisque of 2011.  The picture of you chewing the fat has been deleted.
