New England Clam Chowder
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

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.
