The Great Lobster Cookbook brings you more than 100 recipes to show how easy, varied, and fun cooking lobster at home can be.
Lobster has long been thought of as a staple of haute cuisine, a dish of indulgence, and a testament to skill in the kitchen. But it doesn't have to be that way! Lobster doesn't need to be expensive, intimidating, or difficult. In this cookbook, Matt Dean Pettit will show you how to cook lobster, stress-free, at home.
A lobster lover since he was little boy, Matt started his Rock Lobster Food Co. after a "life-altering lobster experience" in the Maritimes. He had enjoyed lobster everywhere there, from fresh-off-the-dock to dive bars, and was left wondering why lobster could be so readily available (and so reasonably priced) at the source, but reserved for high-end restaurants across the rest of the country. Then and there he pledged to bring lobster to the masses.
The Great Lobster Cookbook has everything you need to know to start cooking lobster from scratch, from understanding lobster anatomy, to buying, storing, and preparing lobster at home. And the recipes cover a huge variety of lobster dishes--from pastas, soups, and salads to tacos, curries, and the more traditional lobster boil and lobster roll--as well as sides, drinks, and desserts to perfectly accompany your lobster dinner, lunch, or brunch.
“Praise for Rock Lobster Food Co.:"If ever there was a local seafood resto truly reminiscent of the East coast, claws down, it's Rock Lobster. And yes, it's another terribly hip haunt that every self-respecting foodie must flock to pronto." --Dine.to”
