About the Caterer
In 1951, Bill Foster of York Harbor, Maine, offered the use of his land to the Civic Club of York for a sportsmen’s show. As part of the agreement, he also put on an old-fashioned Maine clambake to help the club earn money… from this Foster’s Downeast Clambake was born.
Bill’s catering success stemmed from developing a traditional method that was also portable. As news of his sumptuous New England clam and lobster bakes spread, Foster’s was asked in 1961 to put on a New England clambake for General Mills Foods that was featured in their Betty Crocker’s Outdoor Cookbook. This national exposure introduced the nation to both Foster’s and the traditional New England clambake.
Today, Fosters Clambake is run by Kevin Tacy who bought the business in 1985 along with Paul Murphy. Bill worked alongside the new ownership their first year to learn all the techniques that have made Foster’s a New England tradition.
