Chilled Corn Chowder with Lump Crab and Avocado Salad by Alex Hitz

What an honor to share an Alex Hitz recipe from his cookbook The Art of the Host for this week’s Dinner Bell. I prepared the corn chowder for dinner this week and it is divine; the perfect dish to serve for company in late summer and into fall. Whether a balmy evening al fresco or a candlelit supper in the formal dining room, the lump crab avocado salad over velvety, chilled corn chowder is a crowd pleaser.

For a mahjong get together with friends, I would suggest pairing it with a light salad and for a couples’ supper club night this would delight as a first course followed by beef tenderloin and roasted vegetables. Bon appétit!

Of note: You may halve the recipe if needed (I did!) and olive oil worked well in place of a flavorless vegetable oil for the salad portion.
