I found the recipe to be wonderfully tasty, but a bit thin and broth-like as opposed to being a full bodied chowder. The next time I make it, I'll include a tablespoon or so of flour in the mix prior to adding the milk and potatoes, just to thicken the "juice". We had it with lots of crusty baguette and it was scrummy. :-)

So easy and tasty!! Made it as a starter, but so substantial we didn't need anything else once we'd eaten this.
