EPISODE 8 – SUMMER LOVIN’
Fried clams and lobster rolls are some of New England’s most traditional, and favorite, summertime foods. We’re taking you into the kitchens of three classic spots that are summertime favorites. First off, in Middletown, is Flo’s Clam Shack, Aquidneck Island’s most popular clam shack. We get a tour of the operation with owner Komes Rozes, and see first-hand how they do their hand-dipped, ultra-fresh clams, oysters, shrimp, and fish. After we sit down with a Fisherman’s platter, cold beer, and some live music.
Next up we head down to Point Judith, to visit Elsie Foy at Aunt Carrie’s. It was here, over 100 years ago, that the clam cake was born, and Aunt Carrie’s is still Rhode Island’s oldest and most iconic clam shack. In addition to fabulous clam cakes, fried clams and all kinds of seafood, Aunt Carrie’s is famous for their New England lobster bakes, a variety of lobster rolls, and their homemade breads and pies. We do not leave hungry.
And finally we head down the road for a taste of Belle’s Cafe, a somewhat hidden gem in the Newport Shipyard, where you can sit on the water amidst million-dollar yachts and enjoy one of the best lobster rolls we’ve ever eaten, along with fabulous variety of fresh, creative and delicious breakfast and lunch staples.
