New England Clam Chowder: Who Makes The Best Recipe?

Posted: Updated:

If there's one dish that has the ability to inspire heated debate, it's New England clam chowder. When Rhode Islanders added tomatoes to this dish in the 1800s, it caused an uproar. New Englanders felt so strongly against the inclusion of this ingredient into their creamy soup that in 1939 a Maine legislator introduced a bill to make it illegal. Now, that combination is known as Manhattan clam chowder. And while we know tomatoes can't go into this dish, there are still many variations to this classic. Some people add sausage and others double up on fresh herbs. Which do you think makes for the best chowder? Take a vote below and click through the slideshow to get the recipes.
