Crab to Cake: Exclusive Local Run - Smith Island Food-way Adventure

385.00

Step into a food-way space outside of time, in a land, and a way of life, that is both literally and figuratively disappearing from Maryland… Hosted by Eastern Shore natives, with family histories on the Chesapeake waterways for over 300 years.

Learn from the originators!

Spend a hands-on day with watermen and other islanders while learning how to catch, molt, cook, & pick crabs to create the true original Maryland crab cake. As your day and the island stories unfold you’ll learn that this often imitated original is a humble food worthy of accolades through the purists approach. Whether born out of necessity, poverty, thrift, or love of what God shares within arms reach - it is a taste & experience of simple cooking perfection.

  • Tour begins with you meeting us at the Crisfield dock at 9am sharp - Don’t miss the boat!

  • 45 minute (more or less, depending on weather) out to Smith Island to meet our waterman and hosts.

  • We’ll begin with a dock and shanty visit to learn the basics of crabbing & molting, choosing and transporting your booty for your cooking…

  • Learn the island heritage way to cook & pick crabs for your cakes

  • Prepare the original crabcakes & eat!!!

  • You can even wrap up a few of your prized creations to take back home!

  • There will be time to tour the tiny island town & relax before the boat takes us back to the mainland.

This is a full day and we ask that you rest well prior to class - we will return you to the mainland around 3/4pm - ** Our adventure is weather/water dependent…boat could leave later than scheduled or cancelled if water travel is deemed unsafe.
