New England Fish Chowda.
"Stop taking pictures of my dinner!" exclaimed the Sous Chef who is usually most convivial, however today was a bit under the weather and therefore testy. At about 1:00 pm EST he registered an official "request" for fish soup. Now, "fish soup" could mean anything; bouillabaisse, bisque, stew, cioppino, pho...... Bad attitudes aside, and being a native New Englander, I took pity on him and whipped up an authentic fish chowder, uh- I mean, Chowda. The Sous Chef's all-time favorite seafood joint "S.S. Lobster" in Fitchburg Massachusetts may be a whopping 201 miles away, but nonetheless, I embraced the spirit of things and cooked this up in a t-shirt that says "World Class Maine Lobster Captain. Eat Me if You Dare".
