"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
I use one large can of Clams available at Sam's or Costco in lieu of several smaller cans.

If you like chowder thick and creamy then use the part half and half and part heavy cream alternative.
