Lobster Tales

How to Eat a Lobster Ashley Blom

What It Is: Kudos to our ancestors; they were awfully adventurous with what they ate. And perhaps, more relevantly, how they got to it. If you’ve ever been a tricky dining situation where you’ve zero idea how to start tackling dismantling a lobster or swirling your spaghetti perfectly, this book is for you. Filled with beautiful illustrations and 50 answers to (secretly) FAQs about culinary etiquette and practices, this is a must-have for any budding foodie or person who simply doesn’t want to make a fool of themselves at dinner.

Who It’s For: Your son or daughter, who just got a big promotion at work (meaning more client dinners). Your friend, as a funky housewarming gift. Your foodie cousin, to tantalize their mind and tastebuds.

What It Costs: $17.85

Where It’s At: It’s fresh off the presses – nab it on Amazon now.
