Traditionally, a clambake—a feast of lobster, clams, sausage, potatoes, and corn—is all cooked together in a stone-lined pit dug in the sand. This recipe from Giada: A Digital Weekly makes it a little easier to enjoy the full clambake flavor, with none of the hassle. The broth in the pot may be the best part: briny, smoky from the sausage, infused with butter—just the thing to dip the clams in or even hunks of good bread.
