Jacques Pépin and the Lobster
By hubertsblog on Sep 06, 2006
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.
