Before the clambake was a New England tradition, it was a tradition of Native American people for thousands of years. Join in the preparation of a traditional New England clambake meal, cooked in a pit layered with stones and wet seaweed to create a steamy below-ground cooking chamber. While the meal is cooking, learn about the surprising history of favorite New England dishes from artist, educator, gourmet cook and food writer Dale Carson of the Abenaki Nation. Then, once the meal is cooked, sit down and enjoy the feast with new friends!
