Title: “Our Love Affair With Lobster:  First You Scorned Me Now You Love Me?”

 

 

Speaker: Elisabeth Townsend



Who were the courageous people who first ate lobster?  How did they catch and cook it?  Were there really 40-pound lobsters? How was lobster transformed from peasant food into a luxurious delicacy?  What inventions delivered lobster to dinner plates far from any ocean? Can you cook them humanely? These are just some of the questions Elisabeth Townsend will answer for anyone who likes to eat lobster or has chased a lobster across the kitchen floor.

 

Speaker's bio:  Elisabeth Townsend writes about food, wine, and travel. Her work has appeared in the Boston Globe, The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America, Gastronomica and other newspapers and magazines. She is the author of Lobster: A Global History. She is a member of the Culinary Historians of Boston.
