|This Saturday morning I arise to notice dozens of people digging in the sands of the beach. I know immediately what they're after -- it's a small shellfish called a "pinion". Early June is peak season for this "mini-clam" that grows right here on the beach. The shell is as small as your thumbnail and it takes dozens to make a meal, but properly prepared, this is another delicacy of fine French cuisine.|
