The King of Seafood - Canadian Atlantic Lobster Demonstration Show

The popularity (oops, ahem!!) of my blog is none other than my simple, easy and home cooked meals. Basically, what ever I cook for my family, I post it up. I also do incorporate seafood in my dishes, those I am familiar with. But never have I ever included lobster, because I don't know how to cook it.

When I was invited for the "King of Seafood; Canadian Atlantic Lobster" demonstration class (MIGF 2014), sponsored by the High Commission of Canada Piau Kee, seriously, I was overwhelmed. At once I agreed because its a chance for me to learn to cook lobster. 

 I sat right in front, watched and listened to Chef Nigel Ritcher attentively.
He demonstrated and I was totally glued. I know for a fact that watching alone isn't good enough and so, I pictured the step by step techniques and evidently, the most important: de-shelling.
 Fresh lobster into boiled water with lemon juice; to cook for a couple of minutes.
How to de-shell

The shells are packed with flavors, use them for a tasty broth.
Up next; demonstration on creating two dishes with the lobster meat. First; the lobster sandwich.

I made sure I sampled a bit of the sandwich; one whole lobster meat, seated on toast with a creamy sauce and asparagus, topped with a couple of herbs and drizzled with olive oil. I loved it. It was divine; just melted in my mouth. The next dish; lobster potato salad.

Indeed, another captivating dish; potatoes and lobster meat cooked in butter, scented with rosemary and plated with fennel, quail eggs, herbs and olive oil. During the demonstration, I was offered a glass of white wine. I had a sip after sampling both the dishes. Good match.
At the end of the event, we were informed about the chance to win a private cooking lesson with Chef Nigel. I am going for it. I submitted my entry at chef Nigel's facebook page, a picture with chef and wrote a honest caption; 
"Never have I ever de-shelled, cooked neither tasted the "King of Seafood - Canadian Atlantic Lobster". I loved its exquisite taste in the two dishes" Terima Kasih Chef Nigel Ritcher, also posted on my facebook page

I walked out feeling confident because I can now cook lobsters for my family. Thank you to those who invited me
