Fresh from the Adriatic Sea - Cat Bauer's Recipe for Linguine with Clams

Vongole from the Adriatic Sea - Photo: Cat Bauer
1. Go to the Adriatic Sea. Wade knee-deep in the water along the shore. Look down through the gentle waves, keeping your eyes on the sand. When you see some vongole, scoop them up and put them in your bag. Drop the little ones back into the sea so they can grow big and one day provide a proper meal.

2. Go home. Let the clams rinse for about an hour in fresh, cold water to clean out the sand.

3. Meanwhile, take a nice long bath to clean the sand off yourself.


4. Crack open a bottle of chilled white wine. Sip. Relax.

5. Toss some garlic, white wine and olive oil into a pan, then toss the clams in, too.


6. Boil the pasta of your choice at the same time.

7. When all the clams are open, your meal fresh from the Adriatic Sea is ready. (Discard any unopened clams.)


8. Give thanks that you can still walk along the sea in Venice in the year 2017 and come home with dinner!

Ciao from Venezia,
