  • two glasses and a bottle of good white wine

  • one large deep plate and your fingers to eat with

  • Add white wine, let simmer for 2 min

  • Add peeled tomatoes and let simmer for 5-7 min

  • Heat the bread in the oven

  • Season with salt and pepper ( and eventually add some dried chili if you got a chorizo that is not spicy ;)

  • Turn up the heat to full

  • Add clams, distributed evenly in one layer in the large pan

  • Put a lit on and let cook for 4 min (stir carefully once or twice)

  • Add back the chorizo into the pan and mix gently

  • Take out the bread from the oven

  • Serve immediately in a large deep dish drizzled with some parsley

  • Eat with your fingers

  • Dip the bread in the delicious sauce

  • Drink some of your good white wine in between

  • Enjoy
