A lobster eater knows that no one just likes lobster. They LOVE lobster. The clawed creature is enjoyed all over the world, but people flock to New England to dabble in the luxury. Maine-based publisher Cider Mill Press has teamed up with local lobsterman and the Cape Porpoise Lobster Co. to bring lobster lovers the go-to, need-to-know, all-inclusive Lobster Lover’s Kit. Inside you’ll find a fully illustrated book filled with information on everything there is to know about lobster—anatomy, history, how to cook it, how to eat it, how to entertain with it and dozens of recipes that cater to your liking. Also included are four sets of crackers, bibs, special placemats, picks, butter cups, cocktail napkins and a coupon from the Cape Porpoise Lobster Co, who will deliver lobster (dead or alive) right to your door. You’ll even find wonderful sidebars, profiles, colorful anecdotes, impressive photography and secret family recipes from Maine lobsterman themselves! Celebrate the summer with your favorite crustacean!
