Come to the east coast for a good ol' fashioned New England clam boil! Or, make it yourself at home! This delicious meal made up soft shell clams (aka "steamers"), potatoes, onions, hot dogs, sausage, and chourico or linguica. It is great for feeding large groups, and is a summer time favorite. But enjoyed year round!
