This one is alleged to be the recipe from the Hungry Tiger restaurants, where I worked when my wife and I were first together. I'll have to prepare some and see.

1/3 c. chopped onion
1/3 c. chopped leeks
1/3 c. chopped celery
1/3 c. chopped green bell pepper
1/4 c. flour
4 c. fish stock or water
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 bay leaf
Dash thyme
1/3 c. diced potatoes
2 tbsp. dry white wine
1/2 c. chopped clams
6 tbsp. hot whipping cream

Melt butter in saucepan. Add onion, leeks, celery, and green pepper. Cook until tender. Stir in flour; reduce heat and cook slowly about 10 minutes.Stir in stock or water and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add bay leaf and thyme. Bring to boil, stirring frequently; then add potatoes and wine.
