We are proud to announce RI Seafood’s 3rd Annual Quahog Week!
The week kicks off on Monday, March 26th, and is set to be filled with promotions for the Rhode Island’s favorite bivalve
Quahogging has a rich history in the Ocean State, employing hundreds of commercial fishers and serving as a treasured pastime for families. More than 22 million quahogs were harvested in Narragansett Bay last year – with demand swelling in the summer months due, in large part, to the popularity of clam cakes and stuffies. But these delicious local clams also make the perfect fare for winter chowders and other dishes. Quahog “Restaurant” Week shines a light on our favorite local clam and its many uniquely Rhode Island preparations.
Explore all aspects of the shellfishing industry in Rhode Island through photographs and text based on documentation and interviews by folklorist Michael E. Bell and photographer Alex Caserta. View the book →
