Prepping For The 2014 Atlantic City Food And Wine Festival Clam Bake: A Lobster Describes Its Journey From Pot To Clam Bake

Hi, i’m a lobster. What, you don’t believe me?

Atlantic City Food And Wine Festival

See. I’m a lobster. What up? One who is about to take the plunge into a hot pot of boiling water for a Clam Bake. Eeek! Just ┬álike the one that will soon go down at the 2014 Atlantic City Food And Wine Festival with Marcus Samuelsson.

I get to hang out a little bit before someone like you decides my fate (but seriously…I’m okay with it…what good can I really do in the world? I’m a lobster. And for that, I’m a giver.). I get to watch others take the ultimate risk as ingredients for a good meal before it’s my turn. Onions and leeks or something to that effect usually go first. You know…to sizzle and flavor the rest of us. The potatoes usually follow suit next with a little S&P. And then….my sea friends. This is when I know it’s getting closer. The clams….the mussels…the shrimp…and then….yours truly.

Don’t worry, I won’t suffer for long. White wine will cover me soon after and at least put me out of my misery. What better time to get a buzz on? Then, the lid goes on and it’s like a thirty minute sauna. We’re at the spa…kinda.

Once we’re ready to go, it’s off with my head. I’m placed upon a wooden board and cut into what feels like a million pieces. Then my claws are cracked. Who needs protection at this point?

I do however take pride in being so cute though, because I’m what tops your dish to make it all pretty at the end of the day. All those other sea creatures…ugly mugs.

Anyway, let’s be serious folks. We all know what happens next. But it’s worth it….because it just tastes so good. And that’s why us lobsters do what we do what we do, sacrificing ourselves for the greater good of Clam Bakes! There’s really nothing like it! Pleasure takes pain! Yeah!

We hope that all of you attending the Clam Bake with Marcus Samuelsson at this year’s Atlantic City Food And Wine Festival have a grand ol’ time. And you know…don’t feel bad for the lobster. I’m here to tell you it will be okay! Eat up! I’m juicy!
