CAPE COD CATERED CLAMBAKE


Here are some photos from a catered clambake taken by the Cape Cod sand dunes and ocean waters of the Lower Cape in 1984 when I was involved with the Captain's Clambake Emporium Restaurant and catered clambake services. Back then we used to have as many as five catered clambakes going on at the same time at different locations on the Cape as well as hosting clambakes at the Dennis Port restaurant.
Dick Manning, one of the owners of the restaurant , used to say that sometimes he would dream at night that giant lobsters would be chasing him to try to get revenge for all the lobsters that were put to death from the various clambakes. In these pictures bake master Peter Burell is cooking and serving a bus group at an idyllic sea side setting.
