The team at CHEF’STORE® thanks McCormick & Company, Inc for their sponsorship and for sharing this delicious recipe with us.

Chowder is one of the true comfort foods for any time of year. Whether you’re looking for something to enjoy during the colder months of the year or want a hearty bowl to enjoy at the beach, this seafood chowder recipe from McCormick Culinary® has everything you want. 

While fresh seafood and diced vegetables provide the heartiness you want in a chowder, it’s OLD BAY® Seasoning that gives this meal a boost of flavor. Add in cheddar cheese and top with oyster crackers and you have everything to leave the table satisfied.
