The Maine Ingredient!
Clambakes are a wonderful tradition in New England. We can put
on a "bake" at any location you choose, and we take care of everything from
start to finish. The centerpiece of our clambakes is a wood fire that
supplies the heat we need to steam all of the food to perfection in a bed of
typical menu starts with a clam chowder, includes lobster, steamer clams,
mussels, salmon, sausages, corn-on-the-cob, red bliss potatoes, onions, coleslaw
and eggs (really!), and finishes with a berry shortcake on home-made biscuits.
Pricing depends a bit on the size of your group, and on the market price for
lobsters, but if you think $65 per person you probably won't be disappointed.

Puttin' on the lobsters!
Half of the fun
of a clambake comes from building it. We start with a layer of seaweed,
then add eggs (hey, it works!) followed by all the veggies, then the clams,
mussels and lobsters, topped with the salmon and sausage and then finished off
with a mountain of seaweed. We encourage active participation by your
guests, both to layer on the stuff, and to help in "picking" the bake after it's
cooked to perfection.
We have tons of photos of clambakes in
