Title: Lobster Shacks, A Road-trip Guide to New England’s Best Lobster Joints
Author: Mike Urban
This book reviews every lobster shack between Connecticut and Nova Scotia worthy of a visit. Even those with no taste for fresh-caught lobster will enjoy the stories of the shack’s proprietors. In the business, lobsters are known as “The other red meat,” or simply, “bugs.” They are crustaceans.
The further one travels North and up the Coast (or down the Coast as New Englanders would say, noting trade winds), the closer one gets to lobster perfection. The book gets as far as the Canadian border, near Acadia National Park, and Bar Harbor. American Presidents have dined at Bar Harbor in summertime.
They can be boiled in a number of ways, the most preferred being with sea water. The book includes many lobster recipes, and they look seriously delicious.
