New England Clam Chowder
By
New England Clam Chowder’s history in Boston began even before the Parker House opened its doors in 1855. Cape Cod author Joseph C. Lincoln once said, ‘It is as American as the Stars and Stripes, as patriotic as the National Anthem. It is Yankee Doodle in a kettle.’ The perfect soup to enjoy during chilly winter months, the clam chowder has become a staple in Boston, prepared only with the freshest ingredients of clams, clam broth and juice, potatoes and cream. Unlike clam chowders prepared in Manhattan or Rhode Island – which are tomato-based or clam broth-based – Boston prepares the only type of clam chowder made with cream. At the Omni Parker House, 40-60 gallons of chowder are made each week and offered in all of the property’s dining outlets year-round. Always accompanied with oyster crackers, the New England Clam Chowder is not to be missed on your next trip to Boston

Manhattan Style Chowder
A Manhattan-Style Clam Chowder is tomato-based and offers a somewhat lighter version than cream-based clam chowders. The bacon in this recipe adds a smoky and salty touch that pairs well with the tomatoes and clams.

I can never choose between these two soups, so I enjoy them together. I'll make one in advance — like the New England clam chowder in this recipe — and one fresh, then will serve them side by side in a bowl, with the clam meat as a meeting place.

Rhode Island: Rhode Island Clam Chowder
In New England, there is a tale of two chowders, while New England’s thick and creamy chowder is perhaps more well-known, another style clear chowder is famous in Rhode Island. Unlike New England or Boston clam chowder, the base of this soup is clear with a splash of cream added just before serving.
