    Directions

    1. Heat the butter in a saucepan, add the onions, followed by the garlic and sauté for 3-4 mins, stirring. Mix in the wine and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil. Add the clams and simmer for 8-10 mins, until they have opened. Remove using a slotted spoon and set aside. Simmer the liquid for 25-30 mins, until reduced by half.
    2. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan and add the bacon, cook for 4-5 mins, until crisp then add the leeks and fennel and sauté for 2-3 mins. Sprinkle in the flour and sauté for 1 min. Mix the bacon, leek and fennel into the soup then simmer, stirring. Add the cream, oregano and potatoes then simmer over low heat for 25-30 mins.
    3. Just before serving, remove the clams from the shells and discard any clams that didn’t open. Add the clams to the soup and season to taste. Divide between 4 bowls and sprinkle with parsley and chives. Serve.
