Grandma's philosophy was, "Add a little color to your food, and folks will eat up a storm!" This delightful golden chowder was one of her favorite recipes, and the broccoli, carrots and zucchini in it add flavor as well as color. Grandma served mugs of steaming chowder to warm us as we sat cross-legged before the crackling fireplace in her kitchen.
Chowders and stew are my specialty, because I enjoy making use of the bounty at hand—especially the wonderful variety of seafood from the cold waters of the North Atlantic, I devised this recipe years ago, and it remains one of my favorites. I often make it for my daughters and their families when they visit.
