These is some debate over the origins as well as the ingredients of Lobster Thermidor, a classic French dish. Some historians believe Lobster Thermidor was first introduced in 1894 by Marie’s, a popular Paris restaurant. The Lobster Thermidor recipe was created for the premiere of ‘Thermidor’, a play by Victorien Sardou. The play takes it name for one of the months of the Fresh republican calendar, known as the month of heat (July 19th- August 17th). Another story credits the dish to Chef Tony Girod at Café de Paris, also in Paris. Others believe it was named by Napoleon when he tasted it in the month of Thermidor. Here is our New England version of this luxurious lobster dish.

I am the lady you called last week regarding substituting the shrimp cocktail and crab stuffed shrimp for the crab cakes. First of all I want to tell you how much I appreciated you taking the time to actually call and then for being so patient while I tried to decide what to do. THAT IS REAL CUSTOMER SERVICE!! So rare these days. It was so refreshing. THANK YOU!
But the best thing of all was Sunday evening when I got a phone call from my nephew and he was going on and on about how delicious everything was and how he couldn’t believe the size of the shrimp cocktail, bacon wrapped scallops, or the stuffed shrimp. And the clam chowder and lobster bisque he said were outstanding. All of it made for a wonderful birthday meal. So again I want to thank you for helping me make his birthday a memorable one.
I will definately be back,–Kristy Mettler
