  1. Your cooking instructions do not specify when to add the lobster in to cook.

  2. At M & S they don't add the lobster. The lobster is in the bowl and the cream sauce is poured over it. Croutons are then added. Yum!

  5. A chef there gave me the recipe... (for gallons of the stuff, of course). It had some fennel and carrots, as well as onions and celery.
