New England Clam Chowder

Chowder at Newport's Black Pearl
Who makes the best clam chowder?   Traditional clam chowder tastes best using fresh, local ingredients.  It can be served on the dock or at a wedding.  Or, ideally, at a wedding on the dock.

 This can elicit not only the digging up of old recipes, but a weekend-long road trip to taste samples first hand.

Some swear by Cappy's in Camden.

I asked an old and dear friend who had lived in Maine for 10 years and then moved down to Connecticut to share her thoughts.  These are her words and her pictures.

Camden, Maine

Camden, Maine is a hub, and some would the jewel, of mid-coast Maine.  It is a tourist destination during the summer months but is also a bustling year round town as well.
