NE Clam Chowder History, etc Migrating from NE board

dude | Aug 13, 2003 12:23 PM

Over on the New England Board, we've been having some discussion of Clam Chowder. I'd mentioned having some that was seemingly dairy-free a few years ago in Maine, and another individual wanted to know more, being a Mainer and having never seen it that way.

I know I've seen recipes that skip milk/cream like what I had, and thought that I'd seen mention on TV.

Googling through several dozen recipes, I did find one or two that omit milk/cream.

Did I just run across an oddity? Is there precedent for non-dairy chowda? Does anyone else know more about the history of chowda?
