in reply to My favorite food for feasting:

In New England (USA), dead crustacean and mollusk parts are absolutely de rigueur for proper feasting, at least during the summer. Even the vegetarians in my extended clan typically define animals to be "anything with eyes", so they could enjoy a good clambake as well, provided you left out the lobster.

    I'm from New England. A proper summer includes at least one feast involving a lobster roll, and at least one feast involving steamers or fried clams with the bellies.

    And for your vegetarian friends: I guess they can't eat scallops, either (good thing; this leaves more for me. Scallops are incredibly delicious.). After all, they've got 30 or 40 eyes.
