With crab eating season in full swing, many of us on the Eastern Shore of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia (otherwise known as “Delmarva”), as well as seafood aficionados from all across the Chesapeake Bay region and beyond, look forward to the best that summer has to offer—the Crab Feast. At Chesapeake Traditions, we offer everything you need to host a fabulous feast (not including the crabs!)
Need something stylish to wear? Don our Crab Chef’s Apron while working over the hot crab steamer to keep your outfit clean, fresh and ready for picking. With our exclusive Chesapeake Traditions crab design on the bib, this apron is sure to dazzle your crowd.
While waiting for the crabs to cook, serve your guests our delicious Crab House Crunch, Crab House Nuts, and Barnacles Snack Mix, all yummy nibbles flavored with traditional Chesapeake Bay seasoning. Try warming up the trio of our seafood soups, including She-Crab Soup, Eastern Shore Clam Chowder and Crab Norfolk Chowder to start the meal off with a surprise delicacy.
When it’s time to sit down and begin eating, be sure to have plenty of Crab Mallets on hand. We have several options available. The one that will most impress your guests is our handsome Pewter Crab Mallet, which can be custom engraved on the handle with a name, date or special message to claim as your own. Or choose our classic Chesapeake Traditions Crab Mallet, with the image of a blue crab emblazoned on the wooden head.
Hosting a signature party or special event? Consider our Laser-Engraved Wooden Mallets that can be personalized with the name and date of your function—we can even include a custom logo! For big, big crowds, we offer Wooden Mallets by the Dozen, and at a very affordable price. Stock up now, since they always seem to disappear after the eatin’s done!
What crab picker wouldn’t want to sit down at the table with his or her very own special crab knife? We have two styles from which to choose—the traditional Pewter Crab Knife or the unique and very functional Casson’s Crab Knife. Both sport handles sturdy enough to double as a mallet and stainless steel blades that withstand even the toughest shells. (We also offer a Casson’s Oyster Knife and a Casson’s Scallop Knife to use when those crustaceans are in season.)
Last, but not least, fill up our Crab in a Net Spice Shaker with Old Bay for pouring on even more of that delectable seasoning. Pair the shaker with our Crab in a Net Salt & Pepper Shakers to complete your seafood theme and wow your crowd.
