What is a Lobster clambake? (lob•stah clambake)
Historically, the New England Lobster clambake is a tradition older than America itself. It is believed that the pilgrims watched Native Americans gather lobster, clams, mussels and fish and prepare them on the beach. They then dug a sand pit and lined it with coals and hot rocks. To the pit, they added the lobster and clams, covered them in fresh, wet seaweed and more hot rocks, steaming the lobster and shellfish in seawater.
Traditionally, today the clambake is a popular New England sunset dinner. We at Long Island Chowda Co. would like to bring these delicious lobster clambakes to Long Island.
There is nothing more fun and unique than serving an authentic old fashioned Lobster clambake to family and friends. Fresh produce and seafood from Long Island and up the coast to Maine will be sure to surprise and make your mouth water.
Long Island Chowda Co. backyard lobster clambakes recreate a New England clambake similar to the Native American's used to, using Maine saltwater rockweed and all. The only thing that makes ours different, is we do not dig a big hole in your yard.
Allow us to create these same types of memories for you and your guests here on Long Island. A true authentic clambake that all of your guests will remember forever.
