Yummy seafood chowder is perfect for a miserable wet cold Tuesday. The seafood chowder from the Something for Everyone cookbook is great but wanted to try a Chelsea Winter recipe for seafood chowder today because it makes a larger quantity suitable for afternoon tea and dinner.  Chelsea’s recipe has some extra ingredients compared with the Something for Everyone chowder; 1 1/2 cups of wine, 1 1/2 cups of cream and zest of a lemon and the juice of a lemon. It was easy to convert. Can’t share recipe on this blog but it’s from her Everyday delicious cookbook. You could replace the cream with evaporated milk or milk for a lighter chowder but it’s so tasty I’m glad I didn’t go “light” today.
