"Like the title ingredient itself; crack open Lobster! and salivate." Linda Greenlaw
"This is peach of a collection of recipes. Personally speaking, it makes me want to marry a millionaire so I can have lobster every other day. The really good news though is that not only does Brooke cover all the basics -- boiling, lobster rolls, lobster salad, and chowder and stew but dishes up all sorts of other wonderful sounding ways to fix lobster. What a relief to discover what else to do with lobster besides all the usual in-the-rough, lobster rolls, lobster stew. If you get lucky enough to grow weary of plain boiled lobster, here is what else you can do with it."
With simple recipes that scream of summer—like Lobster and Mango Salad Grilled Lobster with Basil Lime Butter and Best Blueberry Pie—this colorful cookbook will appeal to cooks of all skill levels.
