episode 44 :: rockin’ the lobster


I’ll be brutally honest. There isn’t a lot I knew about lobster before this episode. I knew it was delicious. I knew it was caught in traps, that it was highly sought after, and that it was butter’s best friend. Outside of that, not much else. All of that changed for me, and hopefully it will for you too if you knew as little as I did coming into episode 44 of this show.

In this episode, we’re joined by Greg Cain of finelobster.com, who was generous enough to take time out of his busy day to answer a few questions I had about lobster, the lobster business, and about his two web sites finelobster.com and crabplace.com. Not only do they sell and ship LIVE Maine lobsters direct to you (with FREE shipping on orders of $100 or more) but they also sell the best crab cakes available on the internet. Bold claim, I know, but they’ve received the best reviews online. The only way to know for sure is to try them for yourself.
