    White wine and whole topneck clams provide the sophisticated flavor in Walnut Creek Yacht Club‘s New England-style clam chowder, which has been on the menu since the downtown Walnut Creek restaurant opened 23 years ago.

No problem. “You can use this recipe with diced clams and clam juice and that would be just fine,” Weinberg says. Walnut Creek Yacht Club’s Clam Chowder...
