Chowder with Chris Corbett

The question these days, of course, is will winter ever go away?  Right now a lot of us are suffering late winter blues, and we desperately need a cure. Which is exactly why we invited our friend Chris Corbett to join us.  He came by to buck us up with talk of chowder.

Chris is a native of Maine, and he carries his heritage with him wherever he goes.  During the winter months he loves to whip up a steaming bowl of New England style chowder (chow-dah, as he says) to keep body and soul together.
