April 23rd: Oysters, Clams and Sliders

On today’s Cooking Across the Globe 🌏 we head to ……. Rhode Island! Two summers ago, Lars volunteered his shucking skills at the annual Farm Fresh Rhode Island event at Castle Hill in Newport. He learned about a seafood market called Andrade’s Catch in Bristol. Recently, while reading the New York Times, Andrade’s Catch was featured due to their efforts to keep local fisherman in business. We felt we had to do our part to support local RI workers and make a meal of oysters 🦪, little necks, and a few more kid friendly dishes. Tonight we had Hog Island oysters on the half shell, both shucked and grilled little necks, pulled pork sliders with pickled red onions, chipotle aioli and cheeseburger 🍔 sliders on homemade buns. Everyone ate what they wanted yet I was surprised that the kids kept going back for the good stuff!
