Where to Bake: Cape Cod

We take our clambakes all over New England. But we always love coming home to Cape Cod. Here’s where we were born and bred to do clambakes the traditional way. And it was here we first experienced the joys of celebrating the short summer season with an annual clambake party. We learned the ins and […]

We Do Clambakes, Vows Optional

Sure, a wedding is one great reason to host a catered clambake. But really, why should an exchange of vows be a prerequisite for a great summer party? We believe in clambakes anytime and for everyone—including people who aren’t ready to tie the knot and those who tied it long ago. One thing, however: although […]

Holiday Fishes

Around here, the Christmas season revolves around two things: family and seafood. That’s right, seafood. Christmas Eve is one of the biggest fish days of the year, and not just on Cape Cod, but all over New England and New York, too. We have the Italians to thank for that. The Feast of the Seven […]

We’re Growing Our Own

Fall is great for apple picking, pumpkin carving and football. We’d add clam planting to that list. That’s right, fall is the best time to plant steamers. We have just finished planting steamer seed in the marsh of Barnstable Harbor. Soft-shell clam seed (that’s what us aquaculturists call baby steamers) is tiny––less than a quarter […]

Summer Memories and Winter Plans

Was it just us, or did the summer season go by faster than ever? We can hardly believe we’ve already closed Osterville Fish Too in Barnstable for the winter. And we’re closing up our catering building in Sandwich now, too. But don’t forget, Osterville Fish is here year round! It was a great year on […]

Prime Lobster Time

Here’s one good thing about summer coming to an end: as the weather and the water get cooler, lobsters get meatier. Typically in July and August, when water gets to that perfect summer temperature, lobsters begin to shed their shells. They do this as they grow—which lobsters do very slowly. It takes a lobster five […]

A Historic Clambake in Sandwich

Sandwich marks its 375th birthday in 2014 and they’ve been hosting celebratory events all year long. We couldn’t have been happier than when they asked us to help with one of this summer’s shindigs––a real, old-fashioned clambake. The bake was held on July 26th as part of SeaFest. It was a beautiful summer day, and […]

The Striped Bass are Here!

Like most good New Englanders, we love striped bass. It’s one of our all-time favorites. Nothing says summer quite like a striper fillet on the grill. If you’re into fishing, you’ve probably already caught a few stripers by now. They start running in our area in mid-May. Those of you who aren’t fishermen will be […]

A Clambake Wedding in Wellfleet

There is nothing like a summer wedding on Cape Cod. The quaint beauty of our historic towns, the sea breezes coming off Nantucket Sound or the bay, and of course the Cape’s delicious clambake tradition make this pretty much the perfect place for couples planning special celebrations with friends and family. We have catered clambake […]
