“As kids growing up in Connecticut, we remember the classic New England clambake.  We recall the simple days without cell phones and the internet. Our best memories were getting together with family and friends at the beach and enjoying an authentic clam bake and BBQ. The dads would dig the pit, fill it with charcoal, line it with seaweed, and cook the most incredible clam bake you ever tasted!  We remember sand castle contests, horse shoe games, sack races, and swimming during the day; and at night, there were the bonfires, s’mores, folk guitars, and singing…..just enjoying innocent and fun times as kids in the 1960’s.

We would like to pass on this time-honored tradition to you. Corn-filled grins, butter-coated chins, and laughter. Let Essential Chefs Catering create that traditional New England clambake experience for you while you enjoy the best lobster and BBQ you have ever had!” -Chef John
