Clams are a great way to enjoy the refreshing taste of the sea even when you’re miles inland.
These little molluscs can be found in both freshwater and marine environments and have a rich, slightly sweet, oceanic flavour.
How to Cook
Clams make a beautifully light starter when scrubbed clean and cooked simply in a pot with garlic, lemon, and olive oil. And of course, let’s not forget they are a vital component of the Italian classic Spaghetti alla Vongole.
However, for a heartier meal, you could look stateside for inspiration and try your hand at a New England clam chowder. Add your clams to a creamy broth of bacon, diced potatoes, and herbs for a comforting American staple.
What to Drink
Clams and a highly acidic Sauvignon Blanc or a dry rosé are a match made in heaven.
But if serving with a creamy sauce, a white burgundy makes a delightful accompaniment.
