Episode 116: Shell-ebration

Jacques Pepin with his daughter and granddaughter [1]Crab Cakes with Avocado Sauce [2] are a hit with Jacques’ granddaughter Shorey, who shares a taste with him in the first segment. Then Jacques and Claudine reminisce about times-gone-by at the seashore hunting for clams and shellfish as they prepare dishes of Oysters Madison, named after the town where he lives, and Mussels Poulette and Gratinee [3] using wild mussels. Finally, he breaks open some huge clams (after setting them in the freezer for a while) and prepares crispy Clam Fritters [4].
