About the book

Maine lawmaker Cleveland Sleeper loved steamy, creamy, dreamy clam chowder. Thoughts of tomatoes in his

chowder made him see red. So, he proposed a bill to make it a crime to add tomatoes to clam chowder. New

Yorkers were offended! A war of words raged, until finally a duel of chefs settled the matter once and for all.

Hear the true story behind the great chowder cook-off of 1939 from illustrator Vita Lane.
