Lobster Newberg… I Mean, Wenberg

Posted on

How Lobster Newberg got its name is one of my all-time favorite food stories. It’s also a fascinating glimpse into the twisted mind of someone crazy enough to own/run a restaurant. 

Ingredients for 4 appetizer sized portions:
4 (4-oz) lobster tails
2 tbsp clarified butter (melted butter with the milky foam removed)
2 or 3 tbsp sherry or brandy
salt to taste
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 large egg yolks
cayenne pepper to taste
pinch of fresh grated nutmeg
Serve over buttered toast or in freshly baked puff pastry shells (video to follow)
