When it comes to cuisine, Cape Cod is synonymous with seafood. Every town has a restaurant, diner or shack that has perfected such regional favorites as clam chowder, stuffed quahogs and fried scallops.
For many, the lobster is the prime dish to be had here. And on Monday, July 18 at 4 pm, the public has a chance to learn about this regional favorite thanks to a lobster talk and taste hosted by The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster.
Dubbed, “Putting it on the Table”, this event is a foodie’s dream, allowing attendees to take a bite out of this summertime delicacy that can be boiled, steamed, baked, whipped into a salad and put into a toasted roll.
Beth Casoni, executive director of the Massachusetts Lobstermen’s Association, will tell you everything you want to know about the animal that is such a huge part of many commercial fishermen’s livelihood on Cape Cod. In her role as executive director, she serves as the boots-on-the-ground representative for lobstermen, ensuring they can continue to realize success while out on the water.
As part of the event, the public will be able to taste lobster, provided by George’s Fish Market in Harwich. The cost to attend is $7 for museum members and $10 for non-members. Because space is limited, reservations are recommended. Contact the museum at 508-896-3867, ext. 133 to reserve your spot.
