At The Stinking Rose, a garlic-themed restaurant in the old Italian North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, the motto is "we season our garlic with food." This dish from their menu features manila clams steamed in wine with sautéed garlic, which perfumes the shellfish with its nutty fragrance. Serve it with some good Italian bread for mopping up the sauce. This recipe first appeared in our November 2014 issue with the story The Glories of Garlic.
