There's nothing more pleasurable--or nourishing--than a clambake. The same goes for a shrimp boil at Bayou Petit Caillou, an oyster gala on Maryland's Eastern Shore, and real fried smelts at The Port Washington Smelt Fry. It's seafood, it's festive, and it's time for seconds. A celebration of 23 seafood celebrations, with over 100 recipes--from a classic Maine clambake to an informal swordfish barbecue among dockworkers in San Pedro, California--CLAMBAKES & FISH FRIES is Susan Herrmann Loomis's first Passionate Cookbook, and passionate it is. Selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club's HomeStyle Book.
