Celtic Lobster Fest – SO much fun!

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

60 lobsters, chardonnay, celtic tunes, roaming fiddlers, what a night!  Not often can you take children to a culinary event without them loosing interest within ten minutes, however such was not the case last Saturday night at Veranda Beach. Perhaps it was the mound of 60 Atlantic lobsters awaiting their boiling bath, or Bill Lynch with his festive apron, maritime Sou’wester hat and engaging demo on how to dig in. However, I think the best moment was their faces when their own 1 lb lobster arrived, they cracked into the claw, dipped it in clarified butter and savoured that first morsel. It was sleeves up and full on from there! The lobster dog appetizers were a little spicy for them, however SO enjoyed by the adults, and everyone enjoyed the brownie volcano finish. Thanks for the family fun Veranda Beach!
