I love, love, love lobster. Simply steamed and served with butter, or lightly dressed with mayo and loaded into a toasted hot dog bun that can barely contain it — as long as lobster is on the menu, I'm a happy camper.For this recipe, I turned to the master, Thomas Keller, for inspiration — adapting recipes for creamy lobster broth and butter-poached lobster that are featured in his exquisite French Laundry Cookbook. The result is a rich, incredibly decadent treat, with a flavor to match the amount of work that goes into making it. I recommend serving it in a little cup or bowl as a starter to an elegant meal.Click here for more lobster recipes.

If you can’t make it to Pier 81 to dine with them, you can make your own North River Lobster Roll right at home or have it delivered so you can experience the fresh and flavorful taste of North River Lobster Company in the comfort of your own home.
If you're lucky enough to get lobsters fresh from the boat, the still warm, just-cooked lobster meat needs little garnishing. They're great alone with lemon juice, warm drawn butter, or even mayo (if you're of that camp). But rather than serve my lobster meat in a hot dog bun, I like it nearly alone. Nearly, because there is no better way to let that rosy-tinged meat shine than by serving it with mango and avocado for some contrasting color.I recommend assembling this dish with a round ring mold, layering each ingredient before removing the ring. If you don't have a ring mold, however (like me), don't fret — the dish is still just as delicious layered free-form.

Hurricane Irene was no joke for lots of people, but huddled up housewatching out on Long Island during the storm, things could have been worse. There was a full fridge, there was power, and there were lobsters. Inspired by Ruth Bourdain's tweet on the #Irene hashtag ("If, like me, you forgot to stock up on butter-poached lobster for #Irene, you're totally f#cking screwed. Per Se is closing for the weekend") I decided to fight the weather with a simple butter poached lobster. You know, some people just don't have their priorities straight.Now, no one's making any claims that you're going to be able to blindfold Thomas Keller and trick him into thinking he's eating his own fare, and there's not much complication to the recipe, but it's pretty damn tasty, and if you can make it during a hurricane, well, you could pretty much make it anywhere. You know?
