Roasted Corn Chowder

Rating: 5 stars 4
Roasted fresh corn and potato chowder is hard to beat on a chilly day! For a twist, add just a few ounces of smoked salmon and have an incredible British Columbia-inspired smoked salmon corn chowder. Had this in a little cafe on a dock in Vancouver, BC while waiting for a sea plane to take me to the outer west coast of Vancouver Island for a late season salmon fishing trip. I spent several years playing around with it to recreate it. Don't know if I matched theirs exactly, but I have come up with this basic roasted corn chowder recipe that turns into a great smoked salmon chowder, too.

Leek and Potato Chowder

Rating: 4.5 stars 14
This recipe is my tribute to James Crockett, the host of 'Crockett's Victory Garden' on PBS in the 1970's. Jim would raise leeks the size of baseball bats and brag about leek and potato soup. His skill in teaching gardening inspired me to pursue a career in horticulture. This version of your soup is my tribute to you.
