A petite pleasure. Tender, plump, and luscious…these mini, magnificent mollusks are a joyous luxury. Delicately chewy, bathed in crystalline brine, pearls of the sea.
Meet your new favorite tapa. Cockles—with a mild flavor and soft texture similar to clams—have a crisp sweetness that lingers. For pure satisfaction, serve simply alone or with a spritz of lemon and fresh Italian parsley on a plain cracker.
Fresh, sprightly, and adorable. It is easy to fall in love with this elegant bivalve, harvested from heart-shaped shells and sandy seashores.
