Enjoy an elegant evening at home with a lobsterfest designed for two. In a world where fast food is the norm and where all romantic meals tend to be at restaurants, try making lobster at home. What is destined to be a romantic evening at home will not only be less expensive than eating out, but will also have your guest feeling like they’ve received the five star treatment.

Salute your loved one by toasting to life and love with a glass of champagne to kick lobsterfest off. Remember that lobsterfest represents two things, elegance and romance. A multi-course lobsterfest menu exudes class and luxury. Start things off with a cold lobster salad followed by hearty lobster bisque with sherry. This gets the menu rolling and prepares guests for the sumptuous main course or lobster and risotto.

Whether at your personal lobsterfest or the finest restaurant, the simplest preparation is still the finest. Prepare a pot of boiling water of sufficient size to accommodate your lobster. Drop the lobster swiftly into the water and boil for 5 minutes per pound of lobster. As a side dish, prepare a bed of risotto Parmesan. Sauté ½ cup chopped onion in unsalted butter until clear. Mix in two cups Arborio rice. Add a splash of white wine. Cook until the wine has evaporated and begin adding chicken or fish stock until six cups of broth have been absorbed, about twenty minutes. Remove from heat; add ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese to finish the dish.

Remember that a lobsterfest should be romantic, elegant and luxurious. It does not, however, have to be difficult. Prepare the lobster bisque and salad the day before to ease stress on the day lobsterfest arrives.
