Boston Magazine Loves Lobster Pot Pies
Boston Magazine Loves Lobster Pot Pies Claws for Applause By Erin Byers, July 2005 Before tucking into the crispy, golden puff pastry, before watching the steam pour out, beofore taking a bite, and before anything melts in your mouth, be sure to admire the pastry. Hancock Gourmet Lobster Company's lobster potpie is topped with a signature raised lobster shape that's almost too adorable to touch. But you should. Because under that pastsry shell, inside the simple white ramekin, you'll find meaty chunks of lobster in rich, sweet sherry cream sauce. Fresh, decadent and inviting, it's a meal unto itself. Founder Cal Hancock's secret comes from her grandmothers' recipes. "One was a good Maine Yankee. Her theory was, "Don't do anything to ruin it." says Hancock. "The other one was a fabulous cook from Rhode Island and did things with a flair. So the puff pastry and ramekin came from that side." Hancock's pies prepared daily in Cundy's Harbor, Maine, are delivered overnight. Serve several for a dinner party or heat one up for yourself. And don't forget to admire the topper.
