It's always interesting to see how people react to lobster. Sometimes, once people realise that they are alive, before they are dead, they get unsettled. Yes, as silly as that sounds, I have heard it said!
On this occasion there was no such problem. The guests wanted to be actively involved. Even posing for a photo opportunity with the first crustacean into the pot.
The menu was kept simple. No Thermidor sauce, just a lemon and herb butter. This was done to allow the guests to be able to taste and appreciate the flavour. It was the first time for them and I didn't want to mask or hide the natural sweetness of the shellfish.
The meal had been paired with a Chablis and also a white Rioja. Then finished with one of my fresh fruit tarts.
