Gastronomic Lobster Thermidor Available In Kay’s
American Lobster, French Style - that will haunt your hunger daydream.
Rich and extravagant, Lobster Thermidor turns the flavour volume to eleven. While steaming and boiling are the two most common ways to cook lobsters for its freshness and natural juices, Boston lobsters prepared a la Thermidor, is a becoming flavour favoured by the Millenials for their sophisticated taste buds.
In preparing this dish, Kay’s innovates the process from the traditional French culinary arts and skills, which can be very tedious and time consuming.
The head chef makes the thermidor sauce separately using European cream, mushroom, egg yolks, shallots and special seasonings. He then put the thermidor sauce on top of the lobster that has been halved, and grated with parmesan and cheddar on top. Then lobster then broiled to golden brown in the oven.
Listen! Could you hear the crisp popping sound? Try slicing into the lobster flesh while it’s piping hot and see the natural juices of the meat ooze out along with the gooey molten cheese. Such delicious eye candy! Are you ready to savour this macho-looking lobster? I mean who could ever resist ooey-gooey cheese nestled on top of fresh lobster flesh? Not us!
Sample it with the clarified butter and experience the wonderful layers of flavour with superb texture on your tongue. Perfectness in every bite, Lobster Thermidor really shouldn’t be reserved only for special occasions.
The Strange History Of Lobster Thermidor
Despite being the love of the Millenials, Lobster Thermidor recipe is nothing new but has a long history traced back to 1894 instead. It is totally a tasty throwback to the past.
Popular in upscale restaurants during the early to mid-1920s, Lobster Thermidor was first prepared in Maison Maire, a Parisian restaurant. Since Maire was located near the theatre Comédie Française, this recipe was created by Leopold Mourier to honour the premiere of the play Thermidor by Victorien Sardou.
If you’re wondering who Mourier is, Mourier was a French chef who was formerly an assistant to Auguste Escoffier. While the play was named for the eleventh month of the French Republican Calendar, this recipe is named in honour of the play.
Another interesting fact we bet you don’t know is that there is a National Lobster Thermidor Day existed. Since it was first served on January 24th as the premiere meal for the theatre, this date is marked and celebrated.
