Fans of the regional restaurant chain’s signature soup can now buy two 24-ounce containers of the clam chowder, which comes with two rounds of sourdough that can be cut into bread bowls – similar to how it is served in Anthony’s restaurants.

For much of last Thursday morning, Caroline Maher’s head was filled with anxiety – about the long essay due in her English class, the work for her two advanced placement classes, her after-school practice to prepare for an upcoming dance-team performance. In school and after school – with homework, youth-group meetings and a weekend job – nearly every minute of the 16-year-old’s time is scheduled. But for 20 minutes each day at Roosevelt High in Seattle – part of a break the school instituted for all students this fall – she has time to breathe. With her feet on the floor and hands in her lap shortly after her U.S. history class ended, she took three deep breaths and a long slow exhale out.
Three nights of razor clam digging begin Thursday at Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks, but not at Long Beach.

SHELLFISHING – Razor clam digs proposed for April and May would cap a season packed with more “beach days” than any time in the past 25 years, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says. State shellfish managers are planning another 24 days of digging on morning low tides at various beaches from April 4 through May 17.
My parents introduced me to clamming when I was 10 years old. Back then, razor clams in Washington State could be dug in the summer, and a day on the beach during a low tide was a memorable part of family vacations to the Pacific Ocean. The limit then, as it is currently, was 15. I think the clams were larger, but I’m pretty sure they couldn’t dig nearly as fast as they do now. I think part of the reason clammin’ appeals to me still is because I have always had a curious fascination with sand and mud. As a child, my folks called me “Pigpen” after the Charles Schultz character and each blamed the other for the strange, dirty son they were raising.
Quick look: In honor of its 75th anniversary, Ivar’s, the iconic Seattle seafood eatery, has compiled a collection of favorite recipes, including its Famous Puget Sound White Clam Chowder and Legendary Clam Nectar, or clam stock. Ivar’s founder, or “flounder,” the late Ivar Haglund, was famous along the waterfront for his practical jokes and publicity stunts. Packed with puns, vintage cartoons and Ivar’s oft-repeated motto “Keep Clam,” the cookbook keeps with tradition, presenting some of Ivar’s most well-known pranks along with its history, or “fishstory,” and recipes for its sought-after seafood dishes. What’s inside: There might not be a more quintessential Seattle moment than filling up on Ivar’s fish and chips while waiting in the rain for the ferry. This cookbook – a first for Ivar’s – not only offers the recipe for those famous fish-and-chips, it captures the spirit of the Seattle institution. The book’s 60-some recipes come with helpings of humor, pride and a sense of nostalgia. There’s a copy of a 1950s-era menu, lots of vintage photographs, and Ivar’s trivia.
