On holiday: Fruits of the sea
Hmm, I wonder whether or not it is possible for humans to subsist completely on shellfish? If so, then I am interested in a Wellfleet oyster diet. Surely there must be some paleofantasy about our human ancestors to which we could attribute its evolutionary advantages?!
On this trip, we have discovered also a taste for clams - in particular, steamers cooked in Cape Cod Beer, then served with a bit of the cooking broth with butter melted in it... and littlenecks on the half shell.
