An Inaugural Food Tradition

_20170120_121823As a candidate, President Donald Trump dispensed with many traditions. Continuing that theme, he  removed Boston-based Legal Sea Foods chowder from the celebratory menu, where it had been a fixture since 1981. Then he put it back! Want to make it? The recipe comes from the first edition of the Legal Sea Foods cookbook, published in 1988. Use bottled clam broth in place of fish stock to make it easier. Serve with a bottle of champagne — or shots of bourbon — depending on your sentiments today!

About heritagerecipebox

I am named after my great-grandmother, who only prepared two dishes, according to anyone who remembers. Somehow I ended up with a cooking gene that I brought with me from Richmond, Virginia to my current home in Boston, Massachusetts. I have worked as a journalist and published three cookbooks plus a memoir. My first novel is being published in the fall of 2018. This blog gives me a chance to share family recipes and other American recipes with a past.
