Good concepts often re-create themselves in different forms. In this case a great canapé—“Linguine” with White Clam Sauce—led to the creation of another. Pickled julienned cucumber replaces the capellini, dill replaces the thyme, and oysters replace the clams. Instead of being served hot in the clam shells on rock salt, this canapé is served cold in the oyster shells on a bed of seaweed.
