Next Monday I'm making Clam Chowder for my boyfriend, who has a highly-placed and idyllic childhood memory of creamy chowder with sweet bursts of corn and salty clams. I am desperate for some really good recipes. Please note: I am a college student living in Ohio...fresh clams are not going to be an option. And if I can't get fresh corn, should assume that frozen is acceptable...or should I just toss the ingredient? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, I'm think about whipping up Mark Bittman's faster version of no-knead bread to go along with it. Is the effort worth it? Or should I just get a bag of oyster crackers?
