  1. Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven (we have used the Blacklock Dutch oven) over medium heat, 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and continue to cook until golden brown, 1-2 minutes.
  2. Pour in white wine, stock, butter, chilli flakes, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add clams and cover for 4 minutes, or until they start to open. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with a fresh baguette and butter.
