your personal fisherman.
this weekend st. michael’s celebrated their annual winefest – with two days of food, wine, music and celebration throughout town. the talbot county watermen’s association had a tent featuring soft-shell clams with phenomenal cooking demonstrations and tastings all afternoon. the amazing carol bean organized the event and local artist marc castelli leant his talents to the the flyer which featured a watermen’s workboat and the slogan caught by “your personal fisherman.” i stopped by just in time to catch the fabulous barbara helish, chef + owner of bella luna restaurant, as she prepared the clams in a chipotle garlic tomato butter extravaganza – to die for! earlier in the day philip bernot, wine director at wishing well liquor, served much-raved about tempura rockfish bites – delish!
