Learn the finer points of shellfish habitat, identification, processing, and cuisine. You’ll need a bucket, rubber boots, garden cultivator (either hand-held or long-handled is fine), shellfish license, and the beverage of your choice. Lunch will be a feast of clams, along with other goodies provided by the instructors. The cost is $75 and includes signed copies of each author’s book, a $43 value by itself. Class meets Friday, July 29, at 10:30 a.m. in the South Sound, an hour and fifteen minutes from Seattle.
Space is limited. To sign up, please email me at finspotcook AT gmail dot com.
