Jacques Pépin and the Lobster

I just watched a program with Jacques Pépin on public television (KQED). He was presenting a French recipe called lobster Fricassée (see here and search for lobster ) and as a preliminary explained what is the fastest way (thus least painful) to actually kill the beast. Quite interesting and surprising at the same time; I would not have expected to see him actually perform the execution on TV. But as he puts it, it’s either the fishmonger or you but someone has to kill it. At least his method was definitely very quick.

Very refreshing to watch that on American TV after reading articles about some stores that decided to stop selling live lobsters or stories about the ban on foie gras in Chicago and elsewhere.
