Origin of the Chilean Clam Bake…

This is trip back in time and a vivid reminder of a tried and true cooking process still used today. The city of Ancud is located on the northern coast of the island of Chiloé, off the central coast of Chile. It is home to an archaeological treasure of a 6,000 year old curanto, a cooking pit with stone rocks, and is filled with evidence of meats, mussels, abalone, surf and razor clams. To this day, the people of Chiloé still prepare their characteristic dish of clams, other shellfish, pork, and potatoes, and this style of cooking can be found throughout the pacific rim: Tahiti’s anima’a, Maori’s hangi, Papua New Guinea’s mumu, Samoa’s umu, and even Hawaii’s imu
