A classic appetizer, delicious with white wine.


  • 2 cans (4-6 oz each) of Machas (Chilean razor clams or surf clams)
  • 3 slices of Havarti or Muenster cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup of white wine
  • a trickle of heavy cream, optional
  • butter, optional


  1. Preheat the oven broiler to maximum temperature.
  2. Clean the Machas removing the bag with sand.
  3. Put the Machas in a dish that can go to the oven, add the wine, salt, cream, butter in small pieces, and pepper to taste. Cover with Havarti cheese and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Broil in the oven until the cheese begins to brown. Take out carefully; it will be scorching and serve immediately with country bread.
