Mid-August, we make a lot of claims about food being “summer on a plate” or “summer in a bowl.” And while the whole season-being-served metaphor could maybe use some updating, it sits firmly at the front of your brain in times like these, refusing to budge. Especially in times when you’re thinking about corn chowder.

If you’re a New Englander, you most likely have a family recipe for corn chowder, one that’s been handed down, and under the principle that it isn’t broke (so why fix it), you find no need to stray from. Kenji from Serious Eats encourages you to break from tradition this year, and go purist. Which, when it comes to corn chowder, means exactly no pork, and no heavy cream. Shocked? Read on, Kenji will make a believer out of you.
