Quote for Today: If you love soup, you more than likely love life. Chef TJ   National Vichyssoise Day 2017 National Vichyssoise Day, but what is Vichyssoise?

National Clams on the Half Shell Day Quote for Today: There is only one drinking spot for us and it is the Clam. Peter, The Family Guy      March 31st is National Clams on the Half Shell Day.  How this day came about I have no idea. In doing some research on this subject, I came to realize that no one else had any insight as to how this day came about either. No matter, Clams are delicious and don’t need a special day to be enjoyed.  I personally love raw clams on the half shell, but some of the most die-hard, full bellied, fried clam lovers do not.  Since this holiday does not specify raw clams, I am going to focus on a New England favorite, the “Stuffie.” These Clams available all along the North Atlantic Coast are generally...
