I’ll never forget my first taste of Geoduck. It was sweet with a soft flavor of the sea and the texture of pasta cooked to a perfect al dente. Shina from Chelsea Farms prepared this simple dish to highlight one of the Pacific Northwest’s most sought after (also quite possible the ugliest) sea creatures.
While far from the classic this carbonara is quite possibly the most satisfying meal by the fire. Clams slowly steam and smoke by the fire scented with the residual bacon and garlic cooked in the same pan. Eggs and Parmesan miraculously submit into a creamy sauce with the help of a bit of heat the starchy water that the pasta cooked in.
