Storyline

French Chef Pierre Franey and N.Y. Times Food critic Craig Claiborne, plus assorted culinary colleagues Hughes Franey, Jean Vergnes, and Jacques Pepin, produce an authentic American clambake -- with a few Gallic touches -- on the beach outside Franey's house at East Hampton, Long Island, N.Y. Scenes include: Gathering clams, digging the pit, making the bed of stones, gathering wood for the fire, raking seaweed, shucking corn, wrapping food in cheesecloth, sifting sand, raking off burned logs, sealing pit with seaweed, slicing cooked lobsters, putting food on trays, guests taking food. The menu includes French sausage, the dessert is watermelon. The crowd seen enjoying this banquet included about twenty neighbors and friends, children and dogs, and Howard Johnson, owner of the restaurant chain which was soon to be Franey's employer. Written by Stephan Chodorov, writer

Trivia

This documentary was shot entirely in one 20-hour day, on 16mm, by a two-man crew. All the music, effects and narration were put in later on video. This is probably the first appearance on camera of the then young Jacques Pepin, later to have his own television show. See more »
