Corn chowder has a delicate flavour so go easy with the salt. You can always salt it at the table, but you cannot remove salt once it’s been added. So aim to under-salt, because salt easily kills the delicate flavour of corn chowder. Once you add the whipping cream, you cannot boil the chowder. If you have to reheat it, keep a close watch so it won’t come to boil.

2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 onion, diced
1/4 red pepper, diced
2 Tbsp flour
1 potato, diced
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste
