Before I share this fabulously easy recipe for Clam Spaghetti, I have to take a moment to tell you about the craziness that was Feast PDX. I know I can exagerate at times, but this food event actually was insane. I’m talking ate-and-drank-my-heart-out, met the coolest food-industry people, and all around partied for 3-days -type of craziness. The best kind, really. So crazy, in fact, that I didn’t really have time to recover before I was off to my next set of adventures.
One of the highlights of the event was the live Whole Foods Market Fishmonger Face-off, where fishmongers (a butcher of seafood, in case you didn’t know) from across the country competed on presentation, craftsmanship and swagger in knife work. It was really something to see. After this inspiring show, Whole Foods invited me out to meet their local seafood team, where I walked away with 2 pounds of fresh manila clams. If you’re a shellfish person, good news: it’s officially clam season, and crab season is right around the corner. [Note: Salmon season is winding down, per my sad face below]
