America's 35th president was a New Englander through and through. Among his favorite meals was a delicately flavored, creamy chowder which reminded him of his home state. JFK Chowder is fantastically filled with bites of tender white fish and hearty potatoes. It's a rich, warming dish perfect for cold winter nights or de-stressing after busy days. JFK Chowder is a soup of Camelot caliber.
