BUTTERED CLAMS is a newsletter about home cooking and the daily magic it takes to cook: in the form of recipes, pantry ideas, kitchen playlist, and ramblings about fruit. BUTTERED CLAMS is an exploration of the quotidian: sometimes simple or hurried, sometimes leisurely or extravagant, always a lot of bit messy and full of ideas.

BUTTERED CLAMS is a monthly publication featuring my own recipes, pantry ideas and meal planning thoughts.

Author: Abby Olitzky. Currently I spend my days talking about fruit, making bread and preserving lemons. This also happens to be what I do for work. I reside in Ann Arbor Michigan with my partner (in life and business) and my sweet pup Bertie.
