Sarah Vaughan, Waterville, Maine, writes, “Arthur is a born and raised Mainer. His material grandfather was born and raised on the coast of Maine. This Fish Chowder Recipe is how it is made on the coast, also known as ‘Down East.’ Fresh chowder is made in many ways; this is my favorite. I can truly say both of these chowders are absolutely delicious.”
