Not just another Clambake
With B&M your event will not just be another clambake.
Clambakes are a culinary tradition of New England. The process begins with the gathering of seaweed from the coast, which is then layered over a fire and cooked. When the seaweed bursts, it creates steam, which season the seafood with fresh ocean flavor.
This process has been passed down from early settlers. There are several ways to prepare a meal, and it can be done by hand, in a commercial kitchen, or at home.
Quahog clams are a common ingredient in Rhode Island clam dishes. They are tender and have a slightly sweet taste.
It is a small ball of bread crumbs, herbs, onions, and chopped clam meat.
Initially a carb-heavy treat for fishermen, it has become a popular appetizer for Rhode Islanders of all ages.
They can be boiled, fried, or stuffed. A popular Rhode Island dish is quahogs in stuffies, a delectable combination of clam meat and bread crumbs.
Depending on your taste buds, you can add other ingredients to your clambake.
Another way to make a clambake is to fire up your grill. If you don’t have a grill, a stovetop clambake can be arranged.
However, it’s important to keep the heat low so that the food doesn’t burn. It’s also good to keep your food covered so that it doesn’t dry out. You can cook your clams on a propane burner, but the results can be a little different.
Or you can simply take all the stress out of your cooking and reach out to B&M to pick up or get your clambake delivered to you. If you want still to wow your friends or family with your “cooking skills” we are also offering DIY shipped clambakes, all you need is a stovetop (camp stove, campfire, etc.) and in about 30 minutes you’ve got a ready-to-eat Traditional Old Fashioned Clambake.
One of the best parts about a real clambake is that it takes place in an environment where you can see and smell the entire process. Guests can sit down to a delicious, traditional New England meal with a spectacular view.
Not just another clambake – a truly experiential journey
During summer, several institutions hold clambake events in Rhode Island.
These events have been hosted since 1890, and you can go to the farm to enjoy an authentic pit clambake.
Don’t wait! Book your clambake catering with B&M today and enjoy the authentic clambake experience.
Another popular clambake is the Stovetop Clambake, which involves a small metal grill placed in a wooden container. A piece of flat stone is placed on the grill’s edge to provide support. Once the clambake is complete, you can sit down and enjoy a delicious meal.
B&M also offers clamcakes as an alternative meal.
If you believe they are just like fish cakes or crab cakes with clams, you are terribly wrong… A true Rhode Island clam cake is much more than just those other types of cakes.
Imagine a clam beignet, or donut hole. Only tasty. Crispy, golden brown on the outside, pillowy and light on the inside. Steam rises from the first bite. The slightest aroma of brine surrounds you. Tiny chunks of clam nestle themselves in the folds of the pillow, offering surprising bites of chewy meatiness as you down one of these little glories after another. And another.
What makes B&M’s chowder stand out
The most important part of the clambake is the chowder. Most clambakes are served with chowder, which is a creamy soup containing clam broth and corn. In addition to chowder, it might be served with Portugese linguica or chorizo sausage. The chowder may also come with blueberry cake. To top off the experience, you’ll get plenty of napkins.
New England chowder is milk or cream-based, making it significantly thicker than other regional styles. It is made with milk, butter, potatoes, pork, onion, and clams and accompanied by oyster crackers.
Of course, B&M chowders are made with the freshest ingredients!
All in all, a clambake is a simple way to enjoy some of the freshest seafood in the world.
