My family get a lobster every year for Christmas and it still feels special. The true magic of this dish is in the shellfish boil – an aromatic cooking liquid that adds buckets of flavour to whatever you’re cooking. You could also use yabbies, prawns or marron in this dish instead of the lobster.

Cook’s notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Chilling time 30 minutes

To make the shellfish boil, place all the ingredients in a large saucepan with 4 litres of cold water. Bring to the boil over high heat, then add the lobster and return to the boil. Once the liquid has returned to the boil, simmer for 15 minutes, then drain and refresh in a large bowl of iced water. Drain again, then twist the head and the tail in opposite directions to separate the tail. Using a pair of kitchen scissors, cut down the back of the shell on the under-side and remove the shell. Make a long incision down the back of the peeled lobster tail and remove the digestive tract. Crack the claws and remove the meat, then coarsely chop all the meat.

Place the lobster meat and all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and toss to combine.

Toast the rolls, then brush the cut sides with melted butter. Fill with the lobster mixture, then secure with a cornichon threaded onto a toothpick.


• To euthanise the lobster humanely, place it in the freezer for 30 minutes to put it to ‘sleep’, then use a large skewer or knife to piece in between the head and the body.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
