My search is done, think I found the best chowder ever. I made a few variations, added leeks and celery . Will be making again. Thank you

This chowder was absolutely fabulous and delicious! I made a small change by cooking sliced scallions in a little butter with pancetta before adding the potatoes. Yummy - I'll definitely make this again!
