          I saw it for the first time on an episode of Top Chef Masters a month ago, where they had to cook exotic items like this.

          None of them wanted to use it. smile

    No doubt. Small clams can be tough enough to cook w/out getting rubbery. Usually anything larger than a cherrystone/chowder clam is not even used for soup. Can imagine those folks looking at a four pound clam and hesitating.
