Synopsis by Madeline Cavalieri
The Frugal Gourmet, with chef Jeff Smith, is an amazingly thorough video collection with over 80 episodes that include food recipes from around the world. In each episode, Smith demonstrates several simple but important recipes. This episode is all about clams. There are Steamed Clams, Fried Clams, and Stuffed Clams. Smith also prepares Pasta with White Clam Sauce, Corn Chowder with Clams and Chicken, and Turner's Boston Clam Chowder. Smith not only cooks, but also discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge into the kitchen.
