You don't have to travel very far in Atlantic Canada to see an image of a red lobster on a roadside billboard or dominating a restaurant menu. In recent decades, the once-lowly crustacean, traditionally reserved for the lunch pails of the less fortunate in the region's coastal communities, has become an international delicacy.
In this unique photographic gift book, author-photographer Denise Adams tells the "rags to riches" story of lobster, exploring the biology of this mysterious, well-armored underwater insect, the history and evolution of the Atlantic lobster fishery, and delicious traditional lobster recipes with a modern twist, like Silky She-Lobster Bisque and Quinoa Lobster Rolls.
A perfect gift for seafood lovers, tourists, and Atlantic Canadians curious about the region’s most iconic crustacean, For the Love of Lobster includes over 80 colour photographs of all things lobster.
