My current favorite restaurant dish is called Buttered Lobster, a dish I enjoyed at Azie Restaurant in San Francisco, alongside a fabulous Chardonnay from Chalone Vineyard. Lobster, as you would imagine, does not appear as frequently in San Francisco as transplanted New Englanders like myself would want. Fortunately, better shipping and the search for new flavors is giving us more lobster than ever before.

I’m working on a post for Thanksgiving. I was doing a little research on what other food-loving folks are doing for thanksgiving, and I came across this over at The Pioneer Woman’s blog: Butternut Squash Puree. Wow…imagine what that would be like paired with a nice lobster roll the day after. (You’ll understand better on […]
It’s November, and of course, when you think November, you thing Thanksgiving. Those poor pilgrims. Cold and starving in a brave new world. Facing all kinds of peril in a foreign land.

Lobster Tails to Big Island of Hawaii
My mom is a true lobster lover and unfortunately we couldn’t fly to see her on her 50th birthday. We sent her and the rest of our family Whale of a Tail-4 pack to the Big Island of Hawaii. The tails (which were massive in size) go to Hawaii from Maine within 36 hours and arrived still frozen. Best lobster mom has ever had and she’s still talking about it over a week later.
As we say in the islands, MUCH MAHALO! We’ll definitely be bringing more Maine Lobster tails across the Pacific.
