Aww shucks, you're one shell of a dad!
Treat dad to a private demonstration where he can learn the tricks of the trade when it comes to the gifts of the sea. We can set up a private demonstration or a group gathering for a "Dad's Night Out."
Think of all the dishes he'll be ready to create for you. You know what they say, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
Heck, we'll even toss in a free clam knife. We know dads dig tools.
Don't forget, all dads look great in BISCo. gear!

Considering BISCo. had been at the Boss's birthday party the night before until nearly 3 a.m., I can't complain.
Here's hoping to next year. What is your go-to winning recipe?

A while back I mentioned that I joined a CSA and I have been enjoying the bounty of the farm for a couple of weeks now. I wanted to share with you a little bit of what I received at pick up today.
Red Leaf Lettuce
Red Lake Currants
Red Ace Beets
Tonight I enjoyed the squash with a little bit of grilled chicken and had some blueberries for dessert. The veggies and fruit are so fresh---they come with actual dirt on them!
It feels good to be supporting farmers and being a part of my community. Do you go to any farmers markets or belong to a CSA? If so, what do you like about it?

The Block Island Seafood Company is always amazed and flattered by the kindness of the people who come to the cooking demonstrations. Here are the thoughtful words of one BISCo. fan as sent to the library:
" "The happiness of life is made up of little things-a smile, a hug, a moment of shared laughter." Thank you for having the Block Island Seafood Company share with us. Educational, inspirational, delicious & entertaining"
We love to be a part of the happy moments of your life.

Did that title get you to read on? If so, Fifty Shades of Grey has nothing on BISCo. I think you will all enjoy this guest blog entry from Matthew Ward, Executive Sous Chef at the The Adolphus in Dallas, TX.
Take it away, Matt!
As the temperatures start to rise, it’s time to draw our attention to a summer pastime: Grilling! Whether it’s chicken, pork or beef that will be making an appearance on the grill this season, it’s important to have a killer rub to flavor those meats. When I was experimenting with different rubs, I wanted to come up with something that has a strong pronounced flavor and was bold and somewhat spicy. The unique addition to this rub is the chipotle powder. It gives the rub a smoky edge and puts your taste buds on notice. I love to use this rub on my pork ribs, rib eye steaks and chicken thighs. I will usually put the rub on the night before I am going to grill so the flavor penetrates the meat and deepens the flavor of the rub. And if you need to cut the smokiness and boldness of the rub, honey is usually a great way to sweeten things. I usually will put the honey on my meats at the final stages of cooking to avoid it burning. This recipe will make enough rub to have some on hand for a few grilling sessions. I hope this rub becomes part of your repertoire and it gets you excited about the summer and firing up your grill.
Kickin’ Spice Rub
½ cup Kosher Salt
1 cup Chili Powder
¼ cup Black Pepper
¼ cup Cumin
¼ cup Paprika
2 tbsp. Coleman’s Dry Mustard
1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 tbsp. Chipotle Powder
1 tbsp. Granulated Garlic
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Keep in an airtight container.

With the help of MB the Block Island Seafood Co. served up a Father's Day clambake in Manhasset, NY for a terrific family. They enjoyed a raw bar of clams, oysters and shrimp cocktail. Then we finished it off with a clam
bake of steamers, PEI mussels, shrimp, 1.5 lb lobsters, corn on the cob, mom's potato salad and cole slaw.
What a great way to celebrate some really great dads!
