Welcome to my blog, a virtual scrapbook and road map for crafting a well-curated life. 

My husband and I are 30-something Bostonians with a passion for good food, fine company and exploring new places both near and far.  Follow along as I document our adventures and share my tips for traveling, dining and entertaining in style.

An Elegant Clambake

An Elegant Clambake

A Sophisticated Reinterpretation of a Beloved New England Summer Tradition

Impress your guests with Seashell Chowder, Tarragon-Scented Lobster Rolls and summer sides that showcase the season's finest produce.


There's nothing more New England than a traditional Yankee clambake.  Historically cooked over hot coals in a pit dug in the sand, whole lobsters are steamed with sweet summer corn, soft-shell clams, a few new potatoes and perhaps some mussels to boot.  This elegant version offers a sophisticated twist on the classic recipes - and best of all - there are no bibs required!
