This warming, classic soup is packed full of sweet, briny clams, bright tomatoes and white wine for a one-pot favorite you’ll be cooking up all year long. 

Dairy-based New England Clam Chowder has been an American favorite for centuries, but the so-called Manhattan version first appeared at New York’s Delmonico’s in the 1800s. If you’re accustomed to New England Chowder, this dish may surprise you: Manhattan Clam Chowder has a tomato base instead of cream, giving it a more savory, tangy flavor. Add in the meaty clams, their sweet juice and plenty of hearty potatoes, and you’ve got a filling and flavorful chowder — Manhattan-style.
