"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

Prep confit a day ahead of time is using

Mis en place all that stuff up there and separate it!

Reduce clam juice by half while you do this. Set aside.

Clam Chowder Sauce:

I use my Dutch oven or big Magnalite pot for this.
1. In oil on medium, sauté' potats and carrots until tender but not too soft. They will cook more later. Remove them and let them cool.

2. In the same pot, add more olive oil if needed and sauté' shallot, garlic, tomato, and paste for about 30 seconds. Add butter.

3. Add wine, parsley, thyme. Simmer about 5-10 minutes. Set aside.

4. When that is room temp, slowly incorporate the cream

Clam Ragout:

1. In a heavy pot, sauté shallots and diced celery
2. Add stock and bring to simmer.
3. Add corn, carrots, and potaos
4. Add a scoop of confit and the chowder sauce
5. Season and simmer until you like how it tastes
6. Add clams and warm though

To serve: Place a scoop of confit in the bottom of a bowl. Scoop the rest of the deliciousness over it. Garnish with celery leaves, parsley, S&P, and maybe some hot sauce. Fresh bread, too.
