Cape Cod Quahog Month at the 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center

Sandwich locals often speak of the fact that our lovely little village is the best kept secret on Cape Cod. We are aware of how special it is and how fortunate we are to reside here. Although very pleased, we are often surprised when we see our quaint little village in the news. Well, we made the news in a big, all-be-it unusual, way recently. Thanks to the folks at the Marshland Restaurant in Sandwich, we found our little town being highlighted on the big Food Network.

The Food Network has been featuring segments called “the best we ever ate.” Chef celebrities who appear on the Food Network are featured talking about some of their favorite foods and where they have eaten the best of that particular item.  Earlier this year, Duff Goldman, the Food Networks’ “Ace of Cakes” was featured in a segment about his favorite food, the Cape Cod Quahog.

Now, Duff just happens to have grown up in Sandwich, Massachusetts and loves Quahogs. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it is basically a large clam and they are plentiful on Cape Cod. As a big stuffed quahog fan, Duffs’ choice of the best he ever ate comes from our very own Marshland Restaurant here in Sandwich, on Cape Cod.

Needless to say, everyone in Sandwich is very proud of the Marshland Restaurant. Owned by local folks Marty Finch, Kim Babiarz, and Skip Cooke, the Marshland had been a landmark in Sandwich for over 50 years. We all know it well as most folks here eat there quite often. What you get when you go there is great food and reasonable prices and you know it is always going to be delicious. We know two innkeepers who eat there quite often.

If you have never eaten a stuffed quahog, you don’t know what you are missing. The Marshland Quahog is a spicy, salty, briny, delicious concoction. If you are planning to visit Cape Cod this summer, come stay at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast here in Sandwich. When you make your reservation, mention that you read our blog and we will give you a gift certificate for a Marshland Stuffed Quahog and an “I got stuffed at the Marshland” tee shirt; one per reservation please.
