Trade the formal white tablecloth for no-frills newspaper, add sand and surf, and you've got the perfect conditions for a Cape Cod-style lobster boil.
This rustic, family-style meal is just right for the laid-back host. Low-prep ingredients, one pot cooking, and simple setup and cleanup add to the appeal of this classic, crowd- pleasing theme. We set our picnic table on a scenic stretch of beach just as Maine lobstermen have done for ages. But a lobster boil translates just as well to the deck, yard or patio. We'll show you how to style the table, layer the pot and take part in the longtime tradition of a feast that celebrates the king of seafood.
