This indeed is a book for lobster lovers, even if you never tire of just eating lobsters themselves and it is hard to bear the thought of putting that luscious meat into a recipe. This book might tempt you to do so. Of course the recipes require what, is in most parts of the country an expensive ingredient. These are for the most part not inexpensive meals.
The book contains; hors d'oeuvres, salads, chowders and stews, main dishes, rolls, tacos(1), pizza(1) and sandwiches, sides and some recipes that do not contain lobster - mainly desserts. There are about 55 recipes; stories of lobstermen and lobsters themselves and a glossary- lobster lingo, diagrams of lobsters and how to split them are included as well as directions on keeping lobsters and eating them. There are some pictures of the recipes. The recipes themselves are for the most part simple and good, although the layout with some ingredients on one page, and some on the facing page can be a bit confusing.
There are some good recipes in here and ideas such as; mini lobster rolls for hors d'oeuvres. The lobster pasta is wonderful, lobster pot pies - luscious and a rustic fruit tart which contains no lobster was also very good. There is mail order information and web sites, and an index
This is certainly a book for lobster lovers.
