the new england clambake

This northeastern summer classic features the very best of the season. So, when you can’t make it all the way down to the shore, this might be the next best thing. Fill a large pot with a layer of seafood – clams, mussels, lobster – and seasoning, and cook to perfection.

classic lobster rolls

Travel up the Eastern Seaboard during the summer and chances are you’ll come across this infamous roll. Recreate it and serve with a side of fresh cole slaw for an instant escape. The only thing missing will be the sand beneath your toes. Unless you’re actually on the beach, in which case…well done.
