Gourmet Secrets is proud to bring you live lobster right at your doorstep for free in the Gourmet Secrets Live Lobster Festival, ready for the pot and then the table! But how much do you know about lobster, besides its delectable flavor and tender texture?

Nova Scotia lobster belongs to the species Homarus americanus, which makes its home in the warm waters of the Atlantic, from the Labrador in Canada all the way to Cape Hatteras in North Carolina, though it is uncommon south of New Jersey. With members of the species measuring up to 64 cm and weighing in at over 20 kilograms at times, it is the heaviest and one of the longest crustaceans in the world. Because it is a crustacean, it was once considered food for the poor; today, lobster is the example of fine dining, and highly sought after for its great taste and texture.

Contrary to what would be expected, lobsters are not naturally red: their shell contains a mixture of pigments which gives them a green and brown color. When it is cooked, almost all the pigments get degraded by the heat, except for the one which makes the shell red, thus making the lobster a rich red color once it is ready to eat. However, in the wild, lobsters can come in a variety of fantastic colors such as bright blue, stark yellow, and even albino white!

The traditional way of cooking lobster is with a live boil: simply drop the lobster into a pot of boiling water head first and boil it until its shell becomes completely bright red. Then pluck it out of the water and serve it on a plate with lobster crackers, clarified butter and some mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables to enjoy on the side!
