If you’re from the northeast, specifically New England you know how famous New England Clam Chowder is. Corn Chowder has always reminded me of Clam Chowder, so I decided to make a Corn Chowder with Lobster, and it didn’t disappoint. For the recipe, I used half and half instead of heavy cream to lighten it up.
