Editorial Reviews

Review

"Like the title ingredient itself; crack open Lobster! and salivate."

(Library Journal)

"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.

From the Back Cover

Deliciously simple lobster recipes bring the taste of seaside summers to your table anytime. In addition to tasty versions of all your favorite classics, you'll love the simplicity of lobster tacos, the creamy goodness of lobster mac and cheese, and the easy decadence of scrambled eggs studded with lobster meat. It's always a good time to enjoy everyone's favorite crustacean.

More About the Author

Brooke Dojny is an award-winning food journalist and cookbook author with a specialty in writing about New England food. Her recent books on the subject are The New England Cookbook (1999), The New England Clam Shack Cookbook (2003, revised 2008), Dishing Up Maine (2006), New England Home Cooking (2011), and Lobster! (2012).

Brooke began her career as a chef-caterer for Martha Stewart and also contributed to Martha's first book, Entertaining, which is when she caught the cookbook-writing bug. In the 1980s, she worked for the original COOK'S Magazine as a recipe tester and developer, equipment tester, and assistant food stylist. Teaming up with Melanie Barnard, another COOK'S freelancer, the duo launched a syndicated newspaper column and, in 1985, published their first cookbook, Sunday Suppers, which was nominated for an IACP award. Several other titles followed, including Let's Eat In and Parties! (both nominated for James Beard awards), and The AMA Family Cookbook which was a James Beard Award winner in 1998. In 1998 Brooke won the Newman's Own/Good Housekeeping recipe contest (in the food professional category) and had the pleasure of donating her $10,000 winnings to charity. She has made numerous television and radio appearances around the country.

For many years, Brooke and Melanie co-wrote "Every Night Cooking," a regular monthly column in Bon Appetit Magazine. Brooke's work has appeared in Food & Wine, Saveur, and Cooking Light. She currently writes a weekly column in the Portland Press Herald and is a frequent contributor to Down East Magazine. She lives on the coast of Maine where she can be found hanging out at farmers' markets and lobster pounds. You can visit her author page at wwww.facebook.com/brookedojny.

Format: Hardcover
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.

As a frequent Maine lobster eating family, these simple lobster recipes for everyday eating offer great, but easy varieties of preparing this delicious delicacy. Sometimes, though, just steamed (yes, we are steamers with ocean water) lobsters just hauled from the bay, with or without butter is still a wonderful way to enjoy it.
We also have several other cookbooks by Brooke Dojny. I have followed her since the days she made her delicious lemon squares for Martha Stewart.
